When taking a decision to locate your business in Lublin you are making the right choice. Here, you have an opportunity to make a commercial success, and to gain loyal employees who are satisfied with life.

All this is owing to the high quality of living in Lublin. According to PwC’s 2011 “Report on major Polish cities”, the condition of the natural environment in our city is very good. The sense of security is another aspect of the quality of living, which was highly appreciated by the PwC experts. Indicators such as healthcare quality and education quality are much above average. This means that the inhabitants are more satisfied with where they live, where they work, and how they spend their free time.
