BBC decided to focus on the cities that have been climbing the rankings over the past decade. Budapest comes in second to Honolulu but precedes Kuwait City, Taipei and Auckland.
Wiktoria Skiba, founder of Budapest magazine The Spoiled Queen, who has lived in the city for eight years told BBC that the city has made huge progress during her time here.
She highlighted that “there are way more cycling paths and better 24-hour buses and trams, and many parts of the city have been revitalised, like the VII district which was always less developed.”
She adds that even though Hungary has long been known for its wine cultivation, the craft beer scene is exploding in popularity.
In addition, as more national companies have relocated to Budapest, they’ve brought with them better wages and more job opportunities for Hungarians and expats alike.
