World’s best places to live

In 1999, when Austrians elected the far-right Freedom Party to second position in parliament, it brought on sanctions from the European Union based on the party’s hard-line anti-immigration, Austria-first agenda, and memories of Nazi governments of the 1930s and ‘40s. In the late ‘90s, Austria was mired in uncertainty about its direction and place within the EU, and social norms were upset.

It certainly wasn't the best time to live in the nation's capital, Vienna.

Yet 10 years later, with those internal and external conflicts firmly in the past, Vienna is again noted first for its arts and cultural institutions, such as the famed opera house, parks and continental architecture that line the Danube River. Skies are so sunny that Mercer, an international human resource consulting company, ranks Vienna No. 1 in the world for quality of life, and particularly notes the city's harmonious political and social environment as a reason why.
