The EU's annual report on the quality of life in European countries showed that about 90% of EU residents are satisfied with life in their city. At the same time, analysts noted that smaller cities have begun to be perceived by people as better options in many aspects. In particular, in terms of health, safety, housing affordability, and public administration. In addition, such cities are the best option for the elderly, families with children, and migrants. 

Which cities are in the top 10 and which, on the contrary, are not recommended for moving in 2024 - we will tell you further in the article with reference to SchengenVisaInfo.
