What do you repair when choosing the city where to study your training? Surely one of the fundamental aspects, along with others such as language or the cost of everyday life, is security. To find out which are the safest European cities HousingAnywhere has launched an investigation, taking into account public data such as crime level in the city, ease of transportation, behavior versus international students, and also experiences of the current students. Among the cities that offer greater security are two Spanish destinations.


Madrid and Barcelona share the top ten positions with other major European capitals such as Berlin, Copenhagen or Amsterdam. In particular, Madrid appears in the eighth position and Barcelona in the tenth, while the clear leadership of the safest cities to study is held by Vienna, followed by Prague, Stockholm, Munich and Zurich.
