Old marketplace and city hall in Poznań

Last month, the Council for Social Monitoring of Poland (Rada Monitoringu Społecznego) published their annual report ‘Diagnozy Społecznej 2015’ (Social Diagnosis 2015) in which it is shown a general overview of the life in Poland. One of the results that was the most interesting for me was the results of the best places to live in Poland.

Surprising results of the Poland Social Diagnosis 2015

The results were quite surprising for me considering that Warsaw, Capital of Poland, in 2011 was considered as the best city to live in Poland, and in this year is ranked in the 6th place. In 2015 the best city to live in Poland is Poznan, followed by Zielona Gora and Krakow. And the worst cities to live are Ruda Slaska, Opole and Kielce.

What is your opinion about this ranking? Do you agree with the results?, Where would you like to live in Poland? Please leave your comments below
