An annual report from The Economist, published on June 23, says the Austrian capital Vienna is the world’s most liveable city, followed by Danish capital Copenhagen and Switzerland’s Zurich.
Calgary of Canada came in joint third position, while another city of this country Vancouver got the fifth place.
Swiss city Geneva came sixth, Germany’s Frankfurt seventh and Amsterdam of the Netherlands ninth, while Japan’s Osaka and Australia’s Melbourne shared the tenth place.
It is interesting to note that Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, was placed 168th in the list of 173 liveable countries of the world. Europe’s six cities are included in the top ten.
The list was prepared on the basis of stability and good infrastructure, the main charms for the inhabitants of a city, supported by good health care and plenty of cultural and entertainment opportunities.
