The Swiss cities of Zurich and Geneva are the world’s third and sixth best cities to live in, respectively, according to an annual report from The Economist.
Zurich moved up to third place – shared with Calgary, Canada – from seventh in the latest Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) ranking published on Thursday, compared with a similar survey from 2021. Geneva rose two places from eighth to sixth.
Vienna grabbed the top spot from New Zealand city Auckland, which fell to 34th place due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions.
Europe boasted six out of the top ten cities. The Austrian capital was followed by the Danish capital, Copenhagen. Germany’s Frankfurt was also seventh, and the Netherlands’ Amsterdam ninth.
The Economist also ranked Canada highly. Calgary was joined by Vancouver in fifth place and Toronto in eighth. Japan’s Osaka and Australia’s Melbourne shared tenth place.
