Despite the extremely high standard of living and outstanding economic development in Sweden, many locals decide to leave their homeland and settle down in another country. Many Swedish people choose Hungary as their new place of residence. Here is the reason why!
Sweden is the 4th most competitive country in the world. The Scandinavian country ranks exceptionally high in quality of life, health, education, protection of civil liberties, economic competitiveness, income equality, gender equality, prosperity, and human development – reported by Wikipedia.
Even though the country’s population shows steady growth, there is one specific reason why more and more Swedes decide to leave their homeland and settle down somewhere else. The reason for this is the mass migration that has completely transformed Swedish society in recent years.
That is the reason why many Swedish people choose Hungary as their new place of residence.
As the Hungarian news portal Híradó reports, during the last decade more than 400,000 people arrived in Sweden which originally has a population of ten million. As a result, most districts in Malmö already have a high number of immigrants, and crime statistics have been dramatically deteriorating. According to the Swedish Crime Prevention Council, Sweden already had the highest number of shootings in 2019 and a record number of homicides in 2020. The situation is becoming increasingly difficult for the Swedish population to bear.
As an example, we can learn about the case of a Swedish family who moved to Hungary in 2018 for the safety of their children. The Swedish couple decided to do so after 5-6 years of planning. The family used to live in a good region of Central Sweden. However, after a tragic incident when one of their friends was killed, they realized that their homeland was no longer the same where they grew up. That was the turning point when they decided to move to Hungary and start a new life in Budapest. The Swedish couple works as lawyers and lives in the Hungarian capital with their two children.
As they say, they are extremely satisfied that they have chosen Hungary as their new place of residence.
Apart from Swedes, in the past few years, more and more German families move to Hungary because it is safer. They interviewed locals revealed that they were living in constant fear in their home country. That is why they decided to choose Hungary as their new place of residence. As we previously reported, the majority of immigrants moving to Hungary are Ukrainian, Romanian, German, and Serbian citizens.
Besides being among the TOP20 most peaceful countries in the world, Hungary may also attract foreigners for its beautiful wine regions. As we previously reported, this was the primary motivation of a Swedish brother and sister who started to produce wine in the beautiful region of Badacsony.
