Life in Austria and in Carinthia in particular has a lot of advantages
Carinthia is the southernmost province in Austria and is located at the heart of Europe. Here, in the Alps-Adriatic region, people enjoy above-average number of sunshine hours per year and the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea.
As a tourism destination that borders onto Italy and Slovenia, Carinthia, a region with 200 lakes with water clear enough to drink, attracts many tourists every year. While visiting the mountains or sightseeing in one of Carinthia’s culture-packed cities, some may wonder what it would be like to settle in this beautiful region and to build a life in Austria.
And why shouldn’t they? Carinthia is much more than just an attractive tourism destination: It is a high-tech region with a colourful mix of industries, a host of innovative businesses and interesting job opportunities. Compared to other countries, people here enjoy a high standard of living, can feel safe and benefit from a state-of-the-art, family-friendly infrastructure. Put Austria's comparatively low cost of living in the mix, and you have a winner!
