Vienna returns as world's 'most liveable city'

Baku, June 23, AZERTAC

Vienna has again topped the list of most livable cities, in an annual index published by British weekly The Economist. The city had previously held the title in 2018 and 2019, according to DW.

"Stability and good infrastructure are the city's main charms for its inhabitants, supported by good health care and plenty of opportunities for culture and entertainment," the report said.

The Austrian capital slipped to 12th place last year, according to The Economist Intelligence Unit rankings. It bounced back to grab the top spot, dislodging New Zealand’s Auckland, which fell to 34th place due to COVID pandemic restrictions.

The cities are scored on stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure to create the rankings.

Western European and Canadian cities dominated the top of the rankings. Germany's financial capital, Frankfurt climbed 32 places to seventh position while Hamburg and Düsseldorf came in at 16 and 22.

French capital Paris came in at 19th, up 23 places from last year. London was ranked 33, while Milan, Italy was the 49th most livable city. New York in came in at 51.
