Finland and Denmark ranked best countries in Europe for retirees

Scandinavia countries Finland and Denmark have been placed in the list of top ten countries in Europe for retirees, with Finland taking the top spot.

A report published by Blacktower Financial Management Group has revealed the best European countries for retirees in 2021 based on crime rates, the cost of living, life expectancy, property prices, and population age.
