Each year the international consulting firm Mercer conducts a survey to evaluate the quality of living in 221 cities around the world. Once again in 2011, Vienna came out on top in the study, making the Austrian capital the world's most livable city for the third time in a row. The survey compares the political, social and economic climate, medical care, education, and infrastructural conditions such as public transportation, power and water supply.
It also takes into consideration recreational offers such as restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports facilities, the availability of all kinds of consumer goods from food to cars, as well as environmental conditions - from green space to air quality. Vienna: Now or Never!
