Vienna is world's top city, Baghdad the worst

Christmas lights illuminate Vienna's city centre Am Graben Nov 24, 2011. -- PHOTO: REUTERS VIENNA (AP) - Vienna has the best living standard in the world - and Baghdad the worst, according to a consulting group that annually ranks the globe's major cities. Singapore was found to have the best living standards in Asia, coming in at 25th position in the rankings. Mercer also gave German and Swiss cities top rankings, putting four of them among the first five, and says European cities represent over half of the top 25 municipalities graded. The Austrian capital regularly ranks high in such surveys. Though it is rising, the crime rate in Vienna is still among the lowest in Europe. Public transportation and other services are excellent, and streets are clean. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
