The highest level of satisfaction in Europe was recorded in Oslo, the capital of Norway, which is not an EU member state.

Vilnius is followed closely by Stockholm and Copenhagen, 97% each, and Vienna and Luxembourg with 96%.

The lowest satisfaction level was recorded in Athens at 71%. Relatively low levels of satisfaction were in Rome at 80% and Bucharest and Paris, at 83% each.

The survey was carried out in 83 European cities.
