To complete the list of European nations where you can totally change your life, today we will talk about a small country but really unique!
How many of you have never felt suffocated by everyday life? After the crisis that has hit many countries around the world, there have been several difficulties, especially in the workplace, encountered by citizens. Lack of employment, lack of qualified professionals and impossibility of meeting between supply and demand. Few elements but no doubt focal, which have not guaranteed a serene and fruitful period to the international economy. For this reason, with our mini guides, we try to give you all the information you need to understand if a particular country can be adherent to your needs, both in terms of opportunities but also landscape and culture.
So, if you also want to buy a property in Belgium, the solution is in front of your eyes! Just keep reading the next lines, armed with paper and pen, to note down any information necessary to resolve any doubt. So, all we have to do is start: Belgium is waiting for us!
Let's start by saying that Belgium is a federal state made up of three wonderful regions: Flanders, where the language spoken is mainly Dutch, the German-speaking Community, which includes the municipalities ceded by Germany after the end of the First World War, and a French-speaking area, Wallonia.
The different populations that are settled in these territories live together peacefully, although the cultural differences are really evident and substantial. There is in fact a perfect mix between extremely ancient and medieval areas and traditions and the extreme openness to new technologies and modernity. We must remember how crucial the presence of a territory, such as that of the Flanders, of Dutch origin, is, therefore, progressing under the influence of one of the most advanced and creative nations of the entire European continent.
Without going into much detail, let us get to the point: what is the cost of living in Belgium? Generally speaking, we can say that compared with the European average, we are talking about much higher standards. But salaries are also proportionate to the Belgian standard of living. Here is a short list of the basic expenses that a citizen has to bear:
A 3-course meal in an average restaurant: 60€
Local beer: 4€
A cappuccino at the bar in the centre: 2,70€
One 33 cl bottle of water: 1,97€
Monthly ticket for public transport: 49€
One liter of gasoline: 1,40€
Monthly bills for an apartment of 85 sqm: 134,26€
Renting a studio apartment in the city center: 718,20€
Renting a studio apartment on the outskirts: 600€
Obviously these figures are based on a general average of prices. It is more than obvious to point out that, in some areas closer to the capital, the figures may increase, while in the more peripheral areas, they may decrease drastically.
Antwerp and Brussels, as well as being the main cities of Belgium, are also the focus of the economy and the administrative and financial system of the country.
Considering that the quality of life is really excellent, choosing a property in Belgium will be a piece of cake. Public transport is efficient, which is why it is possible to find convenient opportunities even far from the big cities. It starts from a minimum of 50,000 euros for a property in the outskirts of Brussels.
What can I say, our mini guide is over! Let's hope you can spend an amazing life in one of the smallest but most extraordinary places in Europe!
