I’ve labored remotely as a digital nomad in lots of international locations throughout Europe, however the next 4 locations have been my favorites.
These cities are excellent for digital nomads and distant employees who’re on the lookout for a spot to base themselves for just a few weeks to a couple months (or longer.)
All of those digital nomad hotspots supply an reasonably priced value of residing and digital nomad-friendly companies (like speedy WiFi and loads of cafes, espresso outlets, and co-working areas the place you may work in your laptop computer.) They’re additionally vibrant locations with plenty of issues to do.
Here are my high picks for the most effective digital nomad locations in Europe:
1. Seville, Spain
My favourite digital nomad vacation spot in Europe is Seville. Spain’s fourth-largest metropolis, Seville is positioned within the southern area of Andalusia and well-known for its traditions like flamenco and bullfighting.
Seville is extra reasonably priced than cities like Barcelona and Madrid — and for my part, extra lovely and enjoyable! It’s a laidback metropolis that basically comes alive at evening. It’s not unusual to exit to dinner as late as 10 or 11 p.m. in Seville.
Spain now presents a digital nomad visa, so you may live and work in Seville for as much as a 12 months so long as you earn no less than €2,160 per 30 days.
Tip: Seville is finest visited from October via May. During the summer season, it’s unbearably sizzling (frequently over 100° F), nevertheless it’s gentle throughout the winter and pleasantly heat within the late fall and early spring.
2. Bucharest, Romania
Bucharest is one other certainly one of my favourite digital nomad locations. Out of all of the cities on this checklist, it’s additionally essentially the most reasonably priced.
Romania’s capital metropolis is extremely cool, with an eclectic mixture of structure starting from spectacular Belle Epoque model to bleak Communist blocs. Bucharest typically jogged my memory of Paris (the place I beforehand lived), however a little bit of a grittier model of Paris.
This is a good metropolis for digital nomads and distant employees — curiously, Romania has a few of the fastest WiFi speeds in the world, excellent for individuals who work on-line.
Since Romania is just not but a part of the Schengen Zone, American vacationers can keep within the nation for as much as 90 days with out a visa (and with out counting in opposition to time spent in different Schengen Zone international locations.)
3. Split, Croatia
Another nice metropolis for digital nomads in Europe is Split, Croatia. This coastal metropolis is understood for its lovely Old Town and Adriatic Sea seashores.
Croatia is among the top digital nomad destinations on the earth. Although costs have been skyrocketing in Croatia, it’s nonetheless extra reasonably priced than many international locations in Western Europe.
And there are such a lot of superb issues to do in Split. From day journeys to gorgeous Krka National Park to boat rides out to the islands of Hvar and Vis to events on the seaside, you’ll by no means be bored right here. Croatia additionally has a one-year digital nomad visa with an earnings requirement of €2,300 per 30 days.
4. Lagos, Portugal
Finally, Lagos is the proper digital nomad hotspot for seaside bums. It’s smaller than the entire different cities on this checklist, with a inhabitants of simply 31,000. Located on the southern coast of Portugal within the lovely Algarve area, Lagos has a few of the finest seashores in Europe.
It’s growing in popularity as a vacation spot for digital nomads, who’re interested in the laidback way of life, superb seashores, and reasonably priced value of residing.
Portugal remains to be less expensive than different international locations in Western Europe (together with neighboring Spain) and Lagos is very reasonably priced when you go to throughout the low season outdoors of summer season.
