Copenhagen has been voted the most liveable city for Europeans in new research released today.

Cities in Scandinavia, the Netherlands and Switzerland dominate the top 20 cities for European expats, according to data from consultancy ECA International.

In the UK, Edinburgh is the only city that ranks in the top 20, while Aberdeen came in at number 21.

Dublin re-entered the top 10 this year, ranking in joint ninth place with Gothenburg and Luxembourg City.

Elsewhere in the UK, London and Glasgow were ranked poorly for liveability factors, coming in 49th and 57th respectively.

Outside Europe, Canadian cities ranked highly, as did Canberra in Australia and New Zealand capital Wellington. Singapore was the only Asian city in the top 100.

“Edinburgh and Aberdeen lead the way for UK cities in terms of liveability due to a range of factors including lower air pollution and a greater level of personal security,” said Neil Ashman, senior location ratings analyst at ECA International.

“However, what really makes these two cities outshine others in the UK is the existing expat community. This is an important factor in the liveability analysis as a solid network of expatriates will help newcomers feel less isolated and reduces the anticipated culture shock for workers who relocate from overseas.”

Ashman added: “Cities in Scandinavia, Switzerland and the Netherlands have offered good liveability across the board for many years now; with factors such as excellent infrastructure, reliable transport systems, and a high level of healthcare all contributing to their consistently excellent liveability score.”

Ashman said that London’s liveability score had remained steady, despite “higher air pollution and crime levels in the past year”. He added that smaller cities generally outperform bigger ones in terms of liveability.

ECA ranks 480 cities around the world on a variety of “liveability” factors including health services, housing, social life and climate.

Top 20 most liveable cities for Europeans

1. Copenhagen, Denmark

2. Bern, Switzerland

3. The Hague, Netherlands

You gotta love the term "liveable".. 90% of Europe couldn't afford to live in Switzerland ( in reference to the cities on the list)

i dont know if its geography or history you are a little behind in, or just reading comprehension of the thread title itself, but allow me to give you a quick lesson here.

chicago isnt on the list because the list is about liveable cities in europe. chicago and the rest of the united states is not a part of europe because hitler and the nazi's campaign to take over the world failed quite a few decades ago.  this was mainly due to a bunch of upset canadians who stormed the beach of juno and went on to liberate italy,  break the russians out of stalingrad, storm into berlin and  burn down the reichstag building. afterwards they went back home to drink some beers and watch the hockey game, bang out their wives a little, and produce more canadian greatness, such as Georges St. Pierre, Justin Bieber, and Wayne Gretzky.

If your definition of livable is having 2 months of good weather a year then this list really hits the nail on the head! But screw that! I'd rather live someplace where it isn't dark half the year and hovering around zero, even if it's supposedly a little less "livable".........

There's more to the Italian coast than just lame beaches for migrants to wash ashore on. Try Amalfi or Portofino

My bad,  You're right.  I didn't spend long in Italy,  didn't hit up the Riviera at all,  was in Sicily for the most part and it is absolutely an amazing part of the world.

I've been to Italy m8, I know what you mean. Each to their own obvs, but Amalfi is a tourist trap, I don't fall for that chit. It's like going to the Greek islands.  Nice on paper but chit holes full of tourists once u get there

There is nothing wrong with getting drunk on the beach lol I'm just lucky I have beautiful coastlines walking distance from my house so by opinions a bit skewed.  Italy was all about the food for me, if I was to go to that area Is be checking out Pompeii

I'm a bit of a history geek so I can cop some tourists for some ancient chit. I waited hours in lines for a decent angle on the sphinx at sunrise and didnt even get a decent photo I can handle a few for the Pompeii scenes. My downtime on holiday is always away from those leeches tho

i feel you.i love history but pompeii didn't really do it for me. rome is cool but overrated. its like NYC but every few blocks theres an ancient building. Assisi had almost no tourists but there isnt anything to do. no beaches, no good food, just a few old churches that have some cool art. im trying to plan a trip with a few buddies for next summer (not the one coming up) we were thinking of going far away to someplace we've never been. so far New Zealand,Australia, and Japan are at the top of our lists

Japan and new Zealand are awesome. Haven't been to Australia yet but it's on the list. 

I always take these surveys with a bit of a pinch of salt as they look at stuff in a far too broad a sense. Cities that score badly on crime, for example, wouldn't necessarily put off ex-pats because you'd just live in a nice part of town. Good healthcare is probably a factor you look for when you're older but it didn't cross my mind once when I moved abroad. 

Also... Dublin is totally overrated. Belfast >> Dublin. Change my mind.

 Kyoto, Tokyo, saw the snow monkeys near Nagano, went to Kanizawra and Hiroshima plus spent some time near mount fuji and a bit on the south island in some random hot springs town. 

Great country to visit. Got to pick the right season though depending on what you want to see.
