“Budapestʼs central districts still most desirable to live in, says survey”

Conducted for the third time this year, Otthon Centrumʼs survey took in Hungarian cities with more than 20,000 inhabitants, reviewing significant indicators from the point of view of quality of life, online news portal index.hu reported.

Besides the top two central districts of the capital, Districts 6, 7 and 9 in Pest, and Districts 2 and 12 in Buda, also performed well. Unsurprisingly, the outer districts of Budapest featured at the bottom of the rankings. Of satellite towns on the outskirts of the capital, Budaörs and Gödöllő were rated best.

Heading the list of the most liveable provincial cities was Eger, where comparatively large numbers of people have chosen to move in recent years. At the same time, the survey found that big regional centers such as Debrecen, Szeged and Pécs featured only midway in the rankings, noting that residents of these towns need more time to commute to work. Most county towns also fell in the mid range.
