Survey: Nicosia lags in cultural facilities

Nicosia lagged behind other EU capitals in terms of residents’ satisfaction with cultural facilities, according to the most recent European Commission survey.

It showed that in 2015, in 20 capital cities in the European Union, over 75 % of respondents were satisfied with the cultural facilities available, such as concert halls, theatres, museums and libraries.

The four EU capitals with 90% or more of respondents stating satisfaction were Vienna  (97%), Helsinki (94 %), Prague and Stockholm (both 90%).

Nicosia was among three EU capital cities where less than 60% of respondents were satisfied —  Lisbon (59%), Nicosia  (58%) and Valletta (34%).

These results are part of a wider presentation of statistics on capital cities which you can find in the interactive tool “My capital in a bubble”.

The tool enables you to compare statistics on a range of themes including the labour market, quality of life and selected demographics.
