  • The McDonald's Big Mac is well-known around the world.
  • In a global cost of living analysis, UBS compared the price of a Big Mac hamburger in 11 major cities.
  • The most expensive city on the list is Zurich, Switzerland, where a Big Mac costs $6.89 USD.

There are McDonald's locations in 119 countries around the world.

And perhaps no menu item is more famous (or beloved) than the Big Mac: "two 100% pure beef patties and Big Mac sauce sandwiched between a sesame seed bun," with American cheese, lettuce, onions and pickles, as described by McDonald's.

In the 2018 " Cost of living in cities around the world" report, UBS looked at the price points for 128 goods and services in 77 cities worldwide, including everything from a haircut in Zurich to an iPhone X in Kiev. In a story based on its data, UBS broke down the prices of six " millennial must-haves" (avocados make the list) in 11 major cities — and one of those must-haves is a Big Mac.

Below, see how much it costs to buy a Big Mac in some of the world's biggest cities, from Moscow ($2.29) to Zurich ($6.89). All prices listed are in USD.
