Not one American city makes the world’s Top 20 best places to live

Vienna is known for its coffee houses, wine taverns and historic architecture, and, for the eighth year in a row, for being the highest ranked city for quality of living.

The only non-European cities were Auckland in New Zealand, and Vancouver in Canada. The list gauges attractive cities to expand businesses and send employees for work, and bases its rankings on factors such as easy access to transportation, electricity and drinking water.
