When you think of which cities are the right place for you, you probably already feel the connection to a city in the first place.
Sometimes it's hard to explain, but the beauty of life that is completely different from all other places in the world is very well felt. This is a special connection between energy and lifestyle, which is impossible to fall in love with.
Although everyone will have a special relationship with the city in which he was born and raised, some strange chemistry takes place on the journey, and some of your cities win as soon as you step on their sidewalks.
From street musicians, random passers-by and their style, architecture, food, and manners are all small details in the mosaic that connects us to some cities, and others reject us. But, in addition to these subjective criteria, every year worthy researchers examine quality of life in cities from around the world and rank them according to clearly defined criteria that are thematically divided.
After last year Vienna took the first place of the most desirable cities according to the Global Liveability Index, new, fresh results ranked cities in 2019 have arrived these days. Although this research uses a specific set of criteria for ranking in the Global Index, this report is an interesting study in which truly are the best cities from all over the world.
A global consulting firm examined and ranked 231 countries in 10 different sets of criteria. These factors include: political and social environment (political stability, crime, law enforcement), economic environment (currency exchange regulations, banking services), sociocultural environment (media and censorship accessibility, restrictions on personal freedom), medical and health reasons (medical supplies and services, infectious diseases, sewage, waste disposal, air pollution), schools and education (standards and accessibility of international schools), public services and transportation (electricity, water, public transport, traffic congestion, etc.) theater, cinema, sports and leisure), consumer goods (food availability / daily consumption, cars), housing (renting apartments, home appliances, furniture, maintenance services) and natural environment (climate, natural disaster records).
It is a serious and complex study that explicitly took into account all those criteria that make life in a city comfortable, safe and comfortable. Not only is a pleasant environment important for a pleasant life, but the reasons are multi-layered and mapped into a realistic image of well-being. It is therefore not surprising that the first rankings on the scale have been occupied by cities that are mainly the capital of politically and economically stable countries of Western Europe.
Also, according to the report, Baghdad is ranked the lowest, followed by several African cities.
And here are the complete lists of the best cities to live in:
Auckland, New Zealand and Düsseldorf, Germany
