Vienna, the most livable city in the world
Life is returning to normal. People have started to enjoy life from the beginning with those little things that bring peace, tranquility, joy and happiness. In Vienna. Life is better there than anywhere else, according to a new study.
Vienna is even called Lebenskunst, which translates as the art of living well.
And now that restaurants and museums in the Austrian capital have reopened, it is again the perfect place to live with art.
For the third time in the last five years, Vienna is at the top of the Eiu rankings. The city offers many opportunities for culture and entertainment, as well as good infrastructure and overall stability. Five other small European cities are included in the top ten, also benefiting from the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. However since last year Paris and London, due to problems with crime, have dropped several places from the rankings.
Originally designed as a tool to help companies set off compensation for hardships as part of migrant relocation packages, the Eiu index rated living conditions in 172 cities (up from 140 last year) based on more than 30 factors. These are grouped into five categories: stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. This is the second year in which the index includes indicators related to Covid; these assess how each city has coped with increasing demand for health care institutions and capacity closures or limitations for schools, restaurants and cultural facilities.
Three Canadian cities have moved into the top ten, while New York, Los Angeles and Washington DC have all improved compared to last year.
