The price of:
a 30 square meter, studio apartment ranges from 300 to 500 euros.

Not living in the city center doesn’t mean that you won’t have reliable public transportation or be within close proximity to restaurants, cafes and other amenities. These cities contain very nice neighborhoods where it’s easy to feel comfortable and at home.
Another way to ease the financial burden of moving is to keep an eye on unexpected costs, including heating, which isn’t included in your electric bill, snow removal in the winter, and lawn maintenance if you live in a house.
