Asurvey conducted by Otodom and ThinkCo on 35.987 people showed Gdynia as the ”happiest” Polish city to live in. It is followed by Gdansk, Zielona Gora, Tychy, Bielsko-Biała, Szczecin, Rzeszow, Katowice, Poznan and Krakow.
More than half of Poles are happy in their cities, as over 57% of the respondents declare that they are happy where they live. However, 20.9% do not rate as good the level of happiness in their city.
As much as 29% Poles are satisfied by easy access to stores, access to nature (21.7%), how well-connected is their city (23.9%) and options for entertainment and relaxation (21.1%).
On the other hand, 23.9% complain about the poor condition of the environment, limited access to healthcare (22.2%) and ineffective public transport or problems with commuting (22%).
The happiest group in Poland are those aged between 61 and 70 years of age. Those aged between 18 and 24 were the unhappiest.
