If you’ve ever wondered how European cities rank when compared to one another, then we have good news. The Mercer Quality of Living Survey and the Economist Intelligence Unit Living Index measure numerous variables — such as crime rates and health care — to break down how cities around the world stack up.
The most recent surveys can be used to determine which cities in Europe are the most livable. For instance, Madrid is bursting with culture while Birmingham is up and coming. Whether you’re thinking of where to travel or planning a permanent move, read on to see how European cities compare.
Birmingham is a city in England that is on the up-and-up. Back in 2013, the city wowed citizens with a spectacular Library of Birmingham that features an amazing exterior design. The city’s council viewed the library as one of their finer projects in a long list of reconstruction plans.
Birmingham’s next project was a revamped New Street Railway Station, which was completed in 2015. Passengers gave the station a 92% satisfaction rating in 2018, making it the third-highest in the UK, according to BBC News. The city is on track to build more public spaces in the next few years.
