Prague, Budapest and Bratislava were the only three eastern European cites (in contrast to western European ones) listed in the top bracket of 63 cities in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s LIVEABILITY RANKING. The survey assesses living conditions in 127 cities around the world by looking at nearly 40 individual indicators grouped into five categories: stability; healthcare; culture and environment; education; and infrastructure. The survey gives a rating of 0%-100% and judges a city with a lower score to be the more attractive destination. A rating of 20% is where real problems are seen to begin – anything over 50% places severe restrictions on lifestyle.
I have not yet seen the ranking for Prague, but if I do, I will update this post. I can attest to the fact that Prague is much more livable now than compared to the mid ’90s.
