Minsk entered the TOP 10 cheapest cities in the world for foreigners, according to the study of the Cost of Living Survey, which is annually conducted by the consulting group Mercer. In Eastern Europe, Minsk was the most accessible city.
In the Mercer rating Minsk ranked 200th out of 209 (the lower ranking – the cheaper city for foreigners). Over the past year, Minsk rose in the world rating by 4 points thanks to the “relatively stable exchange rate of the US dollar,” the study authors note.
Minsk was cheaper than the capitals of neighboring countries. Moscow ranked 14th in the ranking, Riga by 126, Kiev by 163, Vilnius by 167, Warsaw by 180.
The most expensive city in the world for the life and work of expats was the capital of Angola Luanda. Following are Hong Kong, Tokyo, Zurich and Singapore. The cheapest cities in the world, according to the study, are Tunisia, Bishkek and Skopje.
The Mercer ranking took into account the cost of more than 200 products and services, including house prices, transportation, food, clothing, entertainment and more.
So for example, the transfer from the National airport of Minsk (Minsk 2) to any point of Minsk with our company is only 30 euro for a business class car and 60 euro for a premium car.
