Vienna is best city to live and work, says survey
The Best of Vienna quotes an interesting article from Guardian:
“Mainland European cities are the most desirable places to work despite having some of the highest levels of tax in the world, according to a quality of living survey published today. (28.04.2009)
Thirteen of the top 20 cities in which to live and work are in Europe, including Munich, Copenhagen, Vienna, Brussels, Frankfurt, Stockholm and Berlin, according to research by consultancy firm Mercer.
The survey studied factors including health services, political stability, traffic congestion, crime, media censorship, pollution, mail services, and even the variety and quality of restaurants and theatre. It does not factor in the cost of living.
Top of the quality of life rankings is Vienna, which pushed last year’s lead city, Zurich, into second spot.”
