Highest net salaries in December 2018 among EU capitals have been paid in Luxembourg, same as in 2017, where an average net wage was EUR 3,276.00. On the other end workers in Bucharest have reported more than five times lower average wages for this month which makes Bucharest the worst performing EU capital according to the average salaries with only EUR 607 paid.

Based on the Numbeo data on average cost of living we have prepared the list of EU Capitals according to the net salaries. Unlike other surveys that take into considerations official statistics for salaries paid, Numbeo generates the data based on the feedback users have reported. According to data available for 2018, best performing cities are Luxembourg and Copenhagen in Denmark and London, UK, while the lowest wages are paid in Sofia, Bulgaria, Bucharest, Romania and Riga, Latvia.
Regional discrepancies remain huge across the EU, so workers in best performing cities on average earn up to 5 times more than those in Romania, Bulgaria or Latvia.
