According to an analysis, done by online bedroom furniture retailer Bed Kingdom, to find the most well-rested countries in Europe, Hungary has ranked 25th out of 28 countries analyzed.

The online retailer analyzed eight factors across 28 European countries to determine where people are likely to be the most well rested. Each factor was weighted equally to create a total “Restfulness Score” of up to 100 for each country.

The factors considered were the minimum number of days paid annual leave and public holiday, maximum hours allowed to work weekly, legal minimum duration of rest breaks, annual working hours per person, hours of daily and weekly rest, and the percentage of the population sleeping seven hours or more each night.

The findings revealed Hungary’s neighbor Slovakia to be the most well-rested country in Europe, scoring 86.04 points out of 100. In addition to the 28 days of paid annual leave, Slovak workers are entitled to an additional 15 days of paid public holiday. Alongside Lithuania, this is the highest number of public holidays out of any European country in the study.

Slovakia is also one of only three European countries that are entitled to 12 hours of daily rest between workdays, rather than the 11 hours typically observed across Europe. Additionally, 74.97% of the population were found to obtain 7 hours or more of sleep each night on average.

Hungary has ranked as the 25th most well-rested country, nearing the end of the list. The country received a “Restfulness Score” of 72.59 out of 100, only scoring above the Netherlands, Italy, and Greece.

The breakdown of statistics for Hungary showed that 74.41% of the population is getting seven or more hours of sleep each night, there is a minimum of 20 days of paid annual leave, and 11 days of public holidays. Employees in Hungary tend to work 1,848 hours on average annually, with only 24 hours of rest per week.
