In most situations, both "to" and "jest" are perfectly fine. You just have to remember that after "to" comes Nominative, and after "jest" Instrumental.
"to jest" is also correct, I guess, but to me it seems a bit strange and rather unusual. I think we generally don't accept it unless someone asks specifically.

Hmmm... usually the adjective that just describes the noun goes before the noun. But with this particular phrase... I guess it's ok. But it emphasizes the "European" part. Like "Warsaw is really a big, European city with big, European lifestyle", blablabla. Added, anyway.
