Cost of Living in Austria

In Austria, it is pertinent to note that the cost of living will most likely differentiate from city to city. For example, the cost of living in premium cities such as Vienna would be much more significantly larger when compared to the cost of living in cities such as Wr. Neustadt. On average, however, a typical Russian student spends 950 euros every month.

The entire 950 euros can be broken down into segments to directly identify the cost of each specific segment. Accommodation costs 400 euros, food costs 250 euros and studies and other personal requirements make up for the remaining sum of 300 euros which then brings the grand sum to 950 euros.
