In 2015, Vienna is still the best city to live in, according to a survey which analysed over 440 cities worldwide.

In 2015, Vienna still tops the list of best cities in the world to live in. For several years Mercer, a multinational consultancy society for companies’ development, has drafted  the ranking of the cities with best quality of living for people living abroad, according to 39 parameters divided in 10 categories. This year, more than 440 cities have been analysed. The parameters taken into account include, among others, politics, economy, culture, health, education, public transport, climate and environment.




Among 2015 emerging cities, Mercer recommends Durban, in South Africa (ranking 85th), thanks to a rising manufactory industry, and Cheonan, in South Korea (ranking 98th), which opened a university and technological centre. Manaus, in Brazil (ranking 127th) is attracting foreign direct investment thanks to the creation of a free trade area.
