A Bratislava flat for 13 years work

AN ANALYSIS recently published by the Czech economic daily Hospodářské noviny showed that inhabitants of Bratislava need to work for 12.7 years to buy a flat.

The results fluctuated in the other capitals of the Visegrad Four states: In Warsaw, Poland, people have to work 13.8 years to buy an average three room flat, and in the Czech Republic's capital of Prague, a similar flat costs 17.5 years of work.

On the other hand, those living and working in Budapest, Hungary, proved the best-off in this respect: they can buy a comparable flat for 8.8 years of work.
