Is Osijek the cheapest city in the world for those who want to live a quality, safe and luxurious life?
In an article published this past week by Osijek031.com, they examined this very question. However, for many Osječani, they would not agree and would contribute another story. Taking a closer look at the app it sorts all the raw data and other contributing factors. The web application that has people talking about is “The Earth Awaits.” (www.theearthawaits.com)This is an application for people considering a change in lifestyle or for the more adventurous type who love to travel, and are considering moving to another city anywhere in the world.
The app uses updated information on the quality of life and the most expensive cities around the globe. It provides customers with all the required information about the City where they maybe eventually planning to move, with specific emphasis on the level of cost of living. In this website there are a number of parameters that can be adjusted. For example, you can tune the controls to the luxury to live in a safe city with a low crime rate. Another feature of the app, is that it provides a quality of assortment of health services. The most important, is the global changes in lifestyle as the world has changed drastically in the last year. In facing these real changes one must now consider the respect for freedom and tolerance. With all these parameters to consider the application sorts the world stats and will let you narrow the search options down to seven cities around the world. And one of them is Osijek.
With the actual testing of the website www.theearthawaits.com, we took it upon ourselves to see how and what would happen if one was to input the data as follows.
The filter of what we put into the system
2) Lifestyle: Modest was selected (you have it starts at very lean, lean, Modes, Ample, Opulent)
3) Crime rate: Very Low
4) Population: Very Low
Continents - there is a list of 6 (South America, North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania. We choose to check off only Europe. Using these parameters, Osijek was one of the first on this list so if you want a good healthy lifestyle with safety it comes up on top. To our surprise, Osijek being mentioned as one of the seven cities, it appears to be the cheapest by far. According to this app, it suggest that average person should be able to live on 2,000 Euros a month.
From the results Osijek comes on top of the list which is a positive result. Thinking about safety, health, and living expenses. For example how safe is it to walk down the streets, living in a big city it becomes second nature to always check to see what is around. In some areas there is the chronic problem with children respiratory problems such as Asthma developing. Looking at the features using low pollution to avoid bad health as the cause of the surrounding living environment.
The other side of the coin…
Now let's reverse the test and input that we have lots of money to be made and don’t care about crime, putting it high. One will be shocked as these result show the places that everyone wants to work in. With all this information and much to argue with the reality of the daily media reporting of the mass emigration to Ireland or Germany.
The app works only to a limited capability
There is a hitch or catch one may say with the app that is not mentioned. This is like the thorn of a rose bush with one tiny little problem: how steep is 2,000 euros a month? The average salary in Osijek as per say is significantly lower than the average salary in Croatia. Even going one step further into the situation of average families employed with a solid income is unlikely to earn a total of 2,000 euros. This is whether the allowance of 2,000 Euros is per a single person or a family with two or more children? There is also a glaring problem that stands out which is not clear in the app. It does not show expected income if one does happen to find employment. The other is the Airport that is mentioned.
It may all seem like science fiction being able to live where you want to live. Many things come to mind from leaving one country to start in a new country. For some it is to have a healthy family, safe place to live, work and play. While there are those that would have opposing views to say differently. The idea of having abundance of wealth, versus healthy living and crime free neighbourhoods. The one thing in common that most people share, is to get rid of debt and to have a roof over their head.
Osijek being listed on the top seven can lead to positive results in tourism and the business community. People with the enthusiasm to travel will want to check out this part of Croatia. The business aspect may also be considered, with the goals of having employees living a better life in Osijek.
