These are the 5 best EU cities to work remotely

It is no exaggeration to say that the COVID-19 pandemic changed many things for many people.

One of the most dramatic changes for anyone working in an office was the fact that the way they worked changed - literally overnight. The pandemic also prompted companies to start offering full-time remote work.

Many European countries are now issuing digital nomad visas to welcome remote foreign workers.
