Zurich, Switzerland was named the second most livable metropolis in Europe. Chocolate, skiing, and fancy watches have that effect. The birthplace of Oktoberfest, Munich, Germany, took third place.
Germany had the most livable cities in the top 10, with Dusseldorf (no. 4), Frankfurt (no. 5), and Berlin (no. 10) ranking highly. Switzerland had three itself with Zurich, Geneva (no. 6), and Bern (no. 9).
As for the places you DON’T wanna move to, avoid Belfast, Northern Ireland, and Athens, Greece in Western Europe, and skip Kiev, Ukraine, Tirana, Albania, and Minsk, Belarus in Eastern Europe. Emphasis on Kiev since, well, Ukraine hasn't exactly had a great year.
