Košice residents more content than Bratislavans

According to a recent survey published on August 8, residents of Košice are more content with their lives than Bratislavans. The survey was carried out by the EU on random samples of 500 citizens in 75 selected cities in the EU plus Croatia and Turkey.

"The most content Europeans live in Groningen (the Netherlands), while the least satisfied are in Athens, followed by Naples and Istanbul, where there is a long-term problem with the environment," Košice city council spokesperson Jana Gerocová said.

The survey further revealed that people from Prague, Copenhagen, and Dublin are the most optimistic about career prospects, with as many as 70 percent of those polled agreeing that it is easy to find a job.

According to Gerocová, Košice is the leading town in terms of tolerance towards foreigners, while people in Berlin, Malmo (Sweden) and Stockholm are the least tolerant.

The people of Bratislava are among the most discontent when it comes to issues such as public transport and the number of green areas.
