Just kidding.

The’furnished apartment search engine based it’s ranking on factors like start-up ecosystem, housing affordability, immigration tolerance and quality of nightlife.

With these factors in mind, the cities were analysed taking into consideration four main areas of concern: business ecosystem, the essentials (housing food etc), openness, and recreation.

“Millennials grew up in a shrinking world, where the internet opened doors their parents never could have dreamed of, and budget airlines made those avenues real possibilities.

It’s now possible to live and work anywhere in the world, and these opportunities are shaping how our planet will look to future generations,” said Ömer Kücükdere, Managing Director of Nestpick.

“We must learn to adapt to the needs of younger people in order to have a thriving economy, and we believe that this ranking offers valuable insights to those cities looking for regeneration from a younger demographic.”
