The findings come from the latest data revealed by the European statistics office Eurostat, which published the results of the survey on life satisfaction for 2013. The only country with better result was Poland: 7.3 points, the Etrend.sk website reported.

The Europeans consider the personal relations, housing and time they spend commuting to work the most satisfactory. On the other hand, they are dissatisfied with their financial situation and use of the limited time. The survey also suggests that younger people are happier than the old ones. There is nearly no difference between men and women.

Slovaks report similar results. The only difference is that they consider the lack of quality green and recreation areas in their neighbourhood the second most serious problem, according to Etrend.sk.
