The inhabitants of 23 cities across Poland were asked to rate their cities in nine categories on a scale of one to six.
Categories included public transport, safety, availability of primary school places, the current state of development, and how good the options are for spending free time.
Gdynia topped the rankings in the overarching category of general quality of life, with a score of 5.38, followed by Wroclaw in Lower Silesia (5.05), and Torun, north central Poland (4.93).
Bottom of the pile was Radom (3.43), behind Czestochowa (3.66) and former industrial centre Lodz (3.81).
In terms of progress in development, the inhabitants of Rzeszow, south east Poland, scored notably high, coming second after Gdynia.
Capital Warsaw and cultural capital Krakow emerged in 14th and 10th place respectively in the overall rankings for quality of life.
The survey was carried out by global research agency Millward Brown for the Gazeta Wyborcza daily. (nh)
