Dear the locals

I am working in Örebro city. Recently, I got an offer for the same job but slightly promoted in Umeå city. I will be promoted to that level in Örebro after 3 years. Now, my question is: how much salary increment (in percentages) is reasonable to consider moving to the new position in Umeå?
Örebro is a bigger city and warmer. It is almost 2 hours far from Stockholm (a bus ticket to Arland costs 169 SEK). Umeå is far and I should fly to Arlnda for normally 750 SEK!

I would appreciate if you could compare these two cities and let me know how much salary increment I should ask in the salary negotiation?

All the bests to you guys,

If you are alone without family and don't really care for winter activities i.e an indoor person then stickning to Örebro is a good idea.

So what you’re really saying is that if your one step away from Anthony Bourdaining yourself the orebro is perfect for you?

It is a comparison between 2 places, that is my opinion. I didn't have a "paradise on earth" as one of the options.

Please elaborate more? What is terrible with "orebro"? I meant Örebro btw

I don’t know orebro... nor care to.

You describe it as a place that is good for people who are alone with no family and who like to stay indoors.... that sounds like it is a nightmarish place of lonely people who are afraid of others and life in general.

What more do I need to elaborate on?
