When it comes to healthcare, education, and culture, the Dutch capital ranked among the top 10 most livable cities in the world — and are we surprised? Nee.
According to The Global Liveability Index 2022, Amsterdam managed to snag spot 9 in the top 10, moving all the way up from 21st place since last year.
The index gave to each city scores for stability, healthcare, culture & environment, education, and infrastructure. The rankings were then determined by the average of these combined scores.

A majority of the top 10 cities are in Western Europe and Canada, save for Osaka and Melbourne.
Did Amsterdam really improve?
The Global Liveability Index also pointed out that Amsterdam made one of the biggest improvements in the ranking over the last year.
They attributed it to the move back to “normal life” after high COVID-19 vaccinations and the easing of restrictions.
Likewise, Amsterdam ranked in the top 10 dream cities to work in — but some may say otherwise.

Indeed, Amsterdam may be livable, but it’s proven to be a task and a half to move there.
