Vienna, Home To EU's Best Cultural Facilities

By Haruna Kobayashi, for 12 September, 2016

Vienna is said to be the top capital city in the European Union for cultural facilities, such as concert halls, theatres, and museums, according to the findings of a new report.

A survey conducted by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, showed that at least three-quarters of those living in capital cities are either "very satisfied" or "rather satisfied" with their city's cultural facilities.

Vienna was top of the satisfaction rankings, followed by Helsinki, Prague, and Stockholm.

In 27 of the 28 EU capital cities, most residents surveyed said they were satisfied with cultural facilities. The only capital city where fewer than half of residents were satisfied with their cultural facilities was Valletta in Malta.

The survey results are derived from the Eurobarometer survey on the "Perception of Quality of Life in European Cities" conducted by the European Commission. The survey provides a snapshot of people's opinion on a range of urban issues, such as employment, environment, housing, transport, culture, city services, and immigration.
