The Austrian capital, Vienna, has made a comeback as the world’s most liveable city, according to the annual report from The Economist.

Vienna snatched the top spot from New Zealand city Auckland, which tumbled down to 34th place due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions, according to the report by the Economist intelligence unit published on Thursday.

Melbourne has retained its place as one of the world’s most liveable cities, ranking 10th, as other Australian capitals dropped out of the global top 10. Last year Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth were all in the top 10, but they have fallen to 27th, 30th, and 32nd respectively.

Europe boasted six out of the top 10 cities.
