VIDEO: Why is relocating to this city a smart move?
We meet three locals in central Sweden’s Örebro to uncover what makes this region so special and why they chose life in a smaller city.
Örebro, located between Stockholm and Gothenburg, is one of the nation’s fastest growing cities. It’s a vibrant region with an innovative spirit, charm and history, and a thriving arts and music scene. It’s a place where a centuries’ old castle sits alongside a state-of-the-art university with an AI and robotics lab, and where startups and creatives gather to work and collaborate.
In recent years there has been a worldwide trend of people relocating from big cities to smaller cities and regional areas. Sweden is no different. Today, more and more people have flexibility in how and where they work and are opting to make a ‘smart move’.
Örebro is proving to be one such place where people can have the best of both worlds. It's lauded for being a city where nature is on your doorstep, life is more affordable and there is no commuter traffic – but you don’t have to compromise on a city lifestyle or impressive career opportunities.
Curious to know more, we took a tour of Örebro and talked to three people who call the city home.
