The world’s most liveable cities have been revealed



Vienna is officially the most liveable city in the world

Vienna has taken out the top spot as most liveable city in the world, with the Austrian capital making a comeback from their 12th position last year.

Former number one, Auckland, has slid down the rankings to 34 because of harsh COVID-19 restrictions.

The Economist Intelligence Unit ranked 173 cities based on healthcare, culture, environment, stability and infrastructure.

“Vienna, which slipped to 12th place in our rankings in early 2021 as its museums and restaurants were closed, has since rebounded to first place, the position it held in 2018 and 2019,” the report says.

The two cities share tenth place, with both placing worse than they did in 2021.
