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 good for digital nomads and distant employees who’re in search of a spot to base themselves for a number of weeks to some months (or longer.)
All of those digital nomad hotspots provide an reasonably priced price of dwelling and digital nomad-friendly providers (like speedy WiFi and loads of cafes, espresso outlets, and co-working areas the place you possibly can work in your laptop computer.) They’re additionally vibrant locations with a number of issues to do.
Here are my high picks for the very best 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 situated 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 in my view, 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 possibly can live and work in Seville for as much as a 12 months so long as you earn no less than €2,160 monthly.
Tip: Seville is finest visited from October by May. During the summer season, it’s unbearably scorching (often over 100° F), nevertheless it’s delicate through the winter and pleasantly heat within the late fall and early spring.
2. Bucharest, Romania
Bucharest is one other one in all my favourite digital nomad locations. Out of all of the cities on this checklist, it’s additionally probably the most reasonably priced.
Romania’s capital metropolis is extremely cool, with an eclectic mixture of structure starting from spectacular Belle Epoque fashion to bleak Communist blocs. Bucharest usually jogged my memory of Paris (the place I beforehand lived), however a little bit of a grittier model of Paris.
This is a superb metropolis for digital nomads and distant employees — apparently, Romania has among the fastest WiFi speeds in the world, good for many who work on-line.
Since Romania will not be but a part of the Schengen Zone, American vacationers can keep within the nation for as much as 90 days and not using a visa (and with out counting towards 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 without doubt one of 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 seashore, you’ll by no means be bored right here. Croatia additionally has a one-year digital nomad visa with an revenue requirement of €2,300 monthly.
4. Lagos, Portugal
Finally, Lagos is the right digital nomad hotspot for seashore bums. It’s smaller than all the 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 among the finest seashores in Europe.
It’s growing in popularity as a vacation spot for digital nomads, who’re drawn to the laidback way of life, superb seashores, and reasonably priced price of dwelling.
Portugal continues to be less expensive than different international locations in Western Europe (together with neighboring Spain) and Lagos is very reasonably priced in the event you go to through the low season outdoors of summer season.
