The Economist has conducted a study that found out the best city to live in. Vienna has become the winner of this peculiar competition of cities. Melbourne ranked second, Sydney got the third place. Last year, the rating was about the same, only Japanese Osaka lost its place to Australian Sydney.
Vancouver and Adelaide, followed by Helsinki, Hamburg and Luxembourg, are among top 10.
But there is a little shame for Russia to take the 68th place during two years in a row. The only consolation is that Moscow has topped the list of 5 cities in which living conditions have improved over the past 5 years. Kiev and Belgrade are among the top five too.
Honolulu has become the most comfortable city in the United States. It took the 22nd place in the world ranking. Washington, Seattle and Atlanta are in top 40.
Caracas, Algeria and Tripoli are the worst places for living. Over the past five years, the situation in Detroit, Tunisia and Tripoli has worsened greatly.
When carrying out ranking, 30 different criteria in several categories were taking into account. This is about health, infrastructure, stability, environment and education.
