I’ve labored remotely as a digital nomad in lots of nations throughout Europe, however the next 4 locations have been my favorites.
These cities are excellent for digital nomads and distant staff who’re in search of a spot to base themselves for just a few weeks to some months (or longer.)
All of those digital nomad hotspots provide an inexpensive 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 numerous issues to do.
Here are my prime picks for the perfect 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 inexpensive than cities like Barcelona and Madrid — and in my view, extra lovely and enjoyable! It’s a laidback metropolis that actually comes alive at night time. It’s not unusual to exit to dinner as late as 10 or 11 p.m. in Seville.
Spain now affords a digital nomad visa, so you may live and work in Seville for as much as a 12 months so long as you earn at the least €2,160 monthly.
Tip: Seville is greatest visited from October by means of May. During the summer time, it’s unbearably scorching (usually over 100° F), but it surely’s gentle through the winter and pleasantly heat within the late fall and early spring.
2. Bucharest, Romania
Bucharest is one other one among my favourite digital nomad locations. Out of all of the cities on this checklist, it’s additionally probably the most inexpensive.
Romania’s capital metropolis is extremely cool, with an eclectic mixture of structure starting from spectacular Belle Epoque fashion 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 superb metropolis for digital nomads and distant staff — apparently, Romania has a number of the fastest WiFi speeds in the world, excellent for many who work on-line.
Since Romania isn’t but a part of the Schengen Zone, American vacationers can keep within the nation for as much as 90 days with no visa (and with out counting towards time spent in different Schengen Zone nations.)
3. Split, Croatia
Another nice metropolis for digital nomads in Europe is Split, Croatia. This coastal metropolis is thought for its lovely Old Town and Adriatic Sea seashores.
Croatia is likely one of the top digital nomad destinations on the planet. Although costs have been skyrocketing in Croatia, it’s nonetheless extra inexpensive than many nations in Western Europe.
And there are such a lot of wonderful issues to do in Split. From day journeys to beautiful 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 monthly.
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 number of the greatest seashores in Europe.
It’s growing in popularity as a vacation spot for digital nomads, who’re drawn to the laidback way of life, wonderful seashores, and inexpensive value of residing.
Portugal continues to be less expensive than different nations in Western Europe (together with neighboring Spain) and Lagos is very inexpensive when you go to through the low season outdoors of summer time.
