So, for the eighth year in a row, Vienna has been rated the world’s most “liveable” city. The survey, by consultants Mercer, compares the “political, social and economic climate, medical care, education, and infrastructural conditions such as public transportation, power and water supply.” Oh and “recreational offers”. Personally I wouldn’t rank the power and water supply any higher than most other European cities, but I do agree that there is something very special about Vienna – and not just as a place to live. It is hugely underrated as a tourist destination, and those recreational offers are absolutely outstanding.
So what makes Vienna such an attractive city to live in and visit?
The Telegraph in the UK just did a story on the city of Vienna and why you might want to visit soon.
