The Economist has published its annual ranking of the most liveable cities in the world, and there is a surprise at the top of the podium!
After 7 years of total and absolute domination, the city of Melbourne in Australia has been dethroned. In 2018 Europe is now the place to be, but not in France or the UK. This year it is in Austria and more precisely its capital, Vienna, due to its safety.
At its base, this city is beautiful, there’s no doubt about that! Resembling Paris with its architecture steeped in history and the river that runs through it (there the Danube), what stands out the most in Vienna is its very low crime rate and almost nonexistent corruption. Living in Vienna is good, the climate is perfectly moderate, and it is safe!
The Austrian capital also has all the infrastructure necessary for a strong community life and effective social system. Universal medical care and education, good food, access to countless athletic and cultural activities are all present; everything that makes up the groundwork for a successful big city. So, is it time for a move?
