Once again Vienna has been awarded with the highest-quality-of-living-Oscar worldwide! In the annual Mercer survey Vienna continues to lead the international cities ranking for the seventh time in a row followed by Zurich (2) and Auckland (3).
According to Mercer, the survey evaluates the local living conditions in more than 440 cities worldwide, analyzed and grouped in 39 specified criteria based on political, social, economic, and environmental factors. Besides, the study also considered issues such as medical care, educational opportunities, as well as the general infrastructure e.g. public transportation, power and water supply.
Furthermore Vienna tops the recreational activities aspect such as restaurants, first class cultural events, opera, theater, shows, open air concerts, cinemas etc. as well as the great sport facilities.
This year “personal safety” was a new big issue which had been included in the survey – a concern becoming more and more important in times of terror and war and of course Vienna was in the top league.
So you fancy a trip to Vienna – best city in the world? Panorama Tours is more than happy to support your vacation planning.
