Climate and culture boost local quality of life
Romania is as good a
place to live as the Bahamas,
according to a
new quality of life survey
From research into all 194 official countries in the world, Romania occupies 47th position, placing it next to Slovakia, Chile and the Caribbean nation.
This is better than Bulgaria and Estonia, but worse than Poland and Hungary.
The research took into account factors such as cost of living, leisure facilities, economic, environmental and health factors, as well as risk of danger and the climate.
Culture and climate have helped Romania to elevate its position.
If the index had taken into account only the economy, Romania’s place would have been further down the list with Morocco, the Republic of Moldova, Belarus and Albania. In infrastructure, its score was comparable to Kazakhstan and the Gabon Republic.
