THE WORLD'S HAPPIEST (MOST COMFORTABLE) CITIES

According to official statistics, in 2021 the world population exceeds 7.7 billion people, of which 4.2 billion live in urban areas. This is more than half of the inhabitants of planet Earth. According to experts, in 25 years, this figure will increase by 1.5 times and will exceed 6 billion. Cities generate more than 80% of world GDP and are the source of economic growth of the states. This is especially true for the richest cities in the world.

Unfortunately, not all people live in large metropolitan areas and in comfortable places to live in general. Many localities lack affordable housing, poor infrastructure, no quality health care, low wages and many other problems. All this affects the level of well-being and quality of life of local residents. In short, the level of happiness varies considerably from city to city.

Based on the official UN report World Happiness Report from March 20, which collected data from 156 countries of the planet, we select the happiest and most comfortable cities in the world in 2021.
