How Long do Zagrebians Need to Work to Cover Basic Bills Compared With European Cities?

Zagreb-XmasAverage wage earners in Croatia’s capital Zagreb need to put in 38 hours of work to cover their basic living costs, according to a data from internet site Numbero.com

The average Zagrebian earns 6,656 kuna a month (860 euros), with 1,595 (just over 200 euros) set aside to cover monthly utility bills. Whilst a full week’s work is required to cover basic living costs in Zagreb, those in Helsinki, Finland have to work just 5 hours to cover the same basic living costs with the average wage there 17,560 kuna (2,200 euros) and utility bills just 578 kuna (75 euros).
