The Independent: In Pristina you can live with £437.88 a month

In Pristina you can live with £437.88 a month, being one of the cheapest capitals in Europe to live in. The prestigious media Independent in the article “26 European cities where you can live on less than £600 a month”,  ranked Pristina (Prishtina) on the 4th place.

Business Insider has compiled a list of every European city where you can live on less than £600 a month — that's less than a third of the monthly cost of living in London (£1,838), and significantly less than living in Manchester (£1,128), Glasgow (£1,024), and Liverpool (£1,010).


The data was compiled from Numbeo's Cost of Living Index, which looks at the everyday costs in major cities around the globe and is updated every month.
The index takes into account a multitude of factors including the cost of groceries, eating and drinking out, travel, rent, utilities, and even spread-out and occasional splurges such as clothing and cinema trips — and one country emerged at the clear winner.
