10 Best Cities to Live and Work in 2021. Sculpt IT Recommends

Best cities to live and work in

You want a change, and you want to make a move. You are confused about cities to go for better job opportunities and good living. You want a greener pasture, but the pasture is unclear to you. 

Here’s a rundown of the best cities to live and work in the world:

Vienna, Austria

The city where you find the best quality of life – Vienna, Austria’s capital, lies in the country’s east on the Danube River. Great names such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Sigmund Freud contributed to the city’s artistic and intellectual legacy. Vienna is a satisfying mixture of imperial traditions and breathtaking modern architecture. It is a favorite among many for its cultural events, imperial sights, and coffee houses. 

Austria ranks as the 14th-richest country in the world due to its well-developed social market economy. Vienna has a low crime rate. Additionally, the World Bank has placed Austria as having one of the highest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) per head, indicating a high standard of living for citizens. The country has held this position as first on the list for three years in a row.

Melbourne, Australia

This is the top liveable city in Australia and the second liveable city in the world. Fun fact; Melbourne came in at the number one spot for seven years in a row before it dropped to second place last year. 

If it was a test and Melbourne was a subject, I’ll give it a 98% for its stability and a hundred for infrastructure and education. The city exudes sophistication and grand style.

Sydney, Australia

Sydney is a family-friendly area: a wonderful place to bring up children, with a great climate, beaches, parks, and a good education system.

The Harbour city bagged the fifth safest city in the world in terms of overall safety in The Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2019 Safe Cities.

Osaka, Japan

According to teleport, Osaka has a high rating in housing, business freedom, and healthcare. It ranked 86 out of 265, 133 out of 264, and 17 out of 265 respectively.

Osaka, which is Japan’s second-largest city, boasts of the eighth-largest metropolitan economy in the world. It beat cities like Paris and London to clinch this position. In addition to this, Osaka is also striving to boost its technological advances. Their innovations and intentionality make it a great choice of city to live and work there in 2021.

Calgary, Canada

The saying, “when in doubt, move to Canada”, is not far-fetched. Calgary is the biggest city in Alberta and the fourth largest city in Canada altogether. In 2010, Calgary’s immigrant population was roughly 304,000 — or nearly 30 percent of the total population. 

It is obvious that it draws newcomers to Canada and gifts you opportunities, availability, and beautiful scenery in return. Calgary is literally home to foreigners. The low taxes and housing is even a bigger catch.

Vancouver, Canada

The average Canadian will tell you that Vancouver’s climate is quite mild. Wintertime in the city is easily the warmest compared to Canada’s other big cities.

Vancouver is one of the top five worldwide liveable cities. Its economic and political stability, universal health care, as well as world-class infrastructure, are a few of the many reasons why it is highly considered a liveable city.

It occupied the number one spot from 2002 to 2010. In 2015, the city earned this spot again. Despite slipping down the ranks in recent years, Vancouver has an inspiring appeal and a rich culinary experience.


Infrastructure aside, you’d be delighted to live in Tokyo for the dining alone: it has the world’s best food places on earth. 

Tokyo is a great place to live. The city’s peaceful and has great security, clean, convenient, has an abundance of job opportunities, and has a low public transportation fare. You won’t be wrong if you decide to move to Tokyo.


In 2015, The Economist magazine declared Toronto to be the World’s Best Place to Live in. This conclusion was derived via the combination of factors such as safety, living costs, business environment, opportunities, and democracy. These factors were found to be affordable and constant.

You are right for wanting a good city to live and work in. You can rest assured that Toronto is an excellent choice. The Economist intelligence unit scored Toronto a hundred in terms of stability, healthcare, and education.


In 2017, it was mostly called the cycle city as there was frequent bike traffic. It is a city where bikes outnumber cars.

The clean city has a great feel for spontaneity, creativity, and freedom. For creatives and artists, moving to Copenhagen is a must as there is room for your craft and growth. It has a high cost of living but provides a stellar education system.


This city in Australia has world-class vineyards and natural wines. If you’re looking to permanently reside in this city, the southern coastal part is the best recommendation. The calmness of the city and the fact that it is home to Australia’s top institutions makes it thrive.

Adelaide provides more than safety and affordability. With a population of over 1.3 million people, it meets the requirements of a world-class city. Unlike Australia’s larger cities, you won’t endure overcrowded shopping precincts, footpaths, or extreme road traffic conditions.

Honorable mentions:

1. Ivano-Frankivsk. According to the dou’s recent pole, Ivano-Frankivsk was named the best city to live in. There are several major reasons: it’s small and cozy, small and has a fabulous infrastructure, the prices for accommodation and real estate are the lowest in the whole country and it’s near the Carpathian Mountains. The author of this article and a co-founder of Sculpt IT who’s writing this article can confirm – “Indeed, one of the best places to live in”

2. Lviv. An IT capital of Ukraine. A city with great history and the huge potential that attracts more and more professionals from all over Europe has been named one of the best cities to live and work in, and again, I can confirm – this city will stay in my heart for the rest of my life.

3. Vinnytsia. Chocolate factory, Pivdennyy Buh, and no factories that would pollute the air – isn’t it a dream? Come, visit Vinnytsia and you’ll be surprised how nice is this city to guests and locals.

Happy moving. 😃
