Why Are Vienna And Six Other European Cities The Best In The World To Live In?
It’s “the art of living well” (from the German ‘Lebenskunst’) that has elevated 6 cities in Europe to dominate the top 10 rankings of the most Liveable Cities in the world from a list that rates a total of 172.
Why Vienna? “Stability and good infrastructure are the city’s main charms for its inhabitants, supported by good healthcare and plenty of opportunities for culture and entertainment,” concludes the report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), a sister company of The Economist that produces annual rankings.
No U.S. cities made it into the top 10, which was dominated by small cities in western Europe: the Danish capital, Copenhagen, Switzerland’s Zurich and Geneva, Germany’s Frankfurt and the Netherlands’ Amsterdam, plus Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto in Canada.
