Most Nicosia Residents Unhappy Living in Cyprus’ Capital City

September 7, 2016

A stunning 88 percent of Nicosia residents said they don’t like living in the island’s capital city, a survey by the European statistical agency Eurostat has found.

That’s a two percent increase from the last poll of city life in 2012 and comes three years after the government asked for an international bailout to deal with a banking crisis that has only recently abetted with a recovery on the back of record tourism.

Nicosia placed 21st among the 28 European Union cities for quality of life and resident relative happiness – or unhappiness.

According to Eurostat, at least nine out of ten residents were satisfied with their life in 18 EU capitals led by Vilnius in Lithuania; Stockholm in Sweden and Copenhagen in Denmark; Vienna in Austria and Luxemburg.

The lowest levels of satisfaction were reported in Athens, Rome, Bucharest, and Paris. Compared with 2012, satisfaction with city life rose in most EU capitals.
