The Austrian capital Vienna retained its status as the world's best living city, while Baghdad remained the worst in the annual survey conducted by the global consultancy Mercer.
The company's survey of 231 cities helps companies and institutions identify compensation allowances and subsistence allowances for international workers.
The criteria included political stability, health care, education, crime, recreation and transport.
Eight European countries are on the top ten, with three German cities and three Swiss cities, with New Zealand, Canada and Australia.
Vienna, home to 1.8 million people, topped the list for the ninth year in a row with a vibrant cultural environment as well as a comprehensive network of health care and affordable housing.
Zurich came in second with Auckland in New Zealand and Munich in Germany in third place.
Vancouver came in fifth place to become the best city in North America.
Singapore ranked 25th and Montevideo at 77th, and Durban was ranked 89th.
London dropped to 41th in the annual comparison.
Baghdad has been on the list for the tenth year in a row, and the city has been plagued by sectarian violence since the US-led invasion in 2003.
Yemen advanced two centers from Baghdad while Damascus advanced six positions before the Iraqi capital.
