Free fall of Vienna in the ranking of the best cities in the world to live!
According to OERF, the Austrian state television, after 3 consecutive years in which Vienna was ranked as the best city in the world to live in,
in the latest list of V “Global Liveability Index” Vienna is not even among the top ten of this list and is fallen to the twelfth place of the ranking for 2021!
At the top of the list is AUKLAND in New Zealand, ahead of Japan’s OSAKA and Australia’s ADELAIDE, which are ranked second and third, respectively!
Most European cities that have always held high positions in this category, have fallen sharply this time!
observers attribute the decline because of
the long and sever restrictions due to the corona virus and multiple lockdowns in Europe. Better performance of countries such as New Zealand and Australia in combating this pandemic is considered a very important factor in placing the cities of these countries at the top of this list. 6 cities in these two countries are in the top ten of this list. The worst city to live in, according to the ranking, is Damascus, the capital of the war-torn country of Syria!
