The capital of a European central nation has been named the world’s most liveable city for the third year running.

Vienna, Austria‘s capital and most populous city can boast great services and culture, making it a great place to live, research has found.

In its Global Liveability Index, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) ranked how good 173 cities scattered around the world are when it comes to liveability.

Considering their stability, healthcare, education, culture and environment as well as infrastructure, the EIU found that Vienna remains the best-performing city across the globe.

The central European capital topped the charts with a perfect score when it comes to healthcare, education and infrastructure, while it achieved a 98.4 out of 100 for stability and 93.5 for culture and environment.

The second-best performing city in this analysis is Denmark‘s Copenhagen, followed by Switzerland’s Zurich.

This research confirmed Western Europe to be the best region in the world when it comes to liveability, with 30 cities from this area ranking an average score of 92 out of 100. Nevertheless, the stability category for cities in this area has generally taken a major hit due to geopolitical tensions.

Vienna isn’t just a great place to live in but also an attractive destination for a short city break.

The walkable avenues surrounded by majestic buildings are a must-see, as are its many museums – including the Belvedere Palace, where Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss can be admired.

Lovers of classical music will feel at home in Vienna, where they can visit the State Opera House either via guided tour or by attending one of the many performances taking place throughout the year.

One of the most famous attractions of the city does not require a visit to a museum or a long walk, as it can be found in many of Vienna’s iconic cafes – the Sachertorte, or Sacher Cake. Created for Prince Metternich in 1832, this dessert has earned worldwide fame over the decades.
