Limassol Ranks in Top 100 Cities in ‘Quality of Life’ Survey

LIMASSOL — The Cypriot port city of Limassol has made it onto the Mercer’s List for best places in the world to live, as it ranked 88th on the annual Quality of Living survey.

For a second year in a row, Mercer rates Vienna as the world’s best city to reside. On the other end of the spectrum, the unfortunate Iraqi capital of Baghdad “beats out” places like Kabul as the worst city to live in.

The world’s major metropolises of London, Paris and New York aren’t even in the top 35, according to international research on the subject of quality of life.

Limassol has emerged as the top Cypriot municipality for attracting new businesses and as a growing tourist “hotspot”, with a new shopping mall, marina, zoo and expanded promenade on its waterfront being built in recent years. A boom in the city’s nightlife and tourism product has also been evident.


NICOSIA - Ten years after Cypriot banks confiscated nearly half the amount of bank accounts over 100,000 euros ($107,990) to prevent collapse, a court on Cyprus rejected six joint lawsuits from companies who lost assets.
