The essence of the smart city best describes the words of Natalia Hatalska: “The idea of an intelligent city can not consist solely on implementing solutions in the area of new technologies. These issues are important, but an intelligent city can not be built without considering the needs of its inhabitants. “
The first point to analyze is the satisfaction of the residents and checking if their needs are met. When you wan to be happy, all you is to have a good job. And also a stable financial situation.

And introduction of the possibility to save the purchased ticket on a payment card. The whole investment was introduced in Wroclaw as one of the first investments of this type in Europe. This example shows that the authorities of Wroclaw undoubtedly go with the times. They are infidelity not afraid about modern technologies.
