An international public opinion poll conducted by Grupa Lafarge shows that 91% of Varsovians are happy about living in the Polish capital.

The poll shows a cross-comparison of the levels of life satisfaction in nine chosen metropolitan cities across the world: Warsaw, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Chicago, Rio de Janeiro, Bombay, Algiers, and Chongqing. The residents of Warsaw are as happy about their city as Barcelonians and much more than Parisians (80%).

The Varsovians stress their attachment to the city. 81% of the respondents said they chose to live in the capital and 51% of them thought that the city was a good place to start a career. One out of three said they appreciate the beauty of the city and its historical legacy. 62% of the city residents want to live in the capital despite complaining about the pollution and traffic.

The respondents look into the future with optimism; they said that the capital is constantly developing and has a big potential for change.

The ideal city, according to them, should be safe, culturally rich and have a dynamic economy.
