Guess the name most admired city in the world
Paris was named the most admired city in the world, informes efigaro.fr .
The decision was made after a study based on the answers given according to:
- conditions (housing and public facilities)
- economic and educational potential
The analysts from Anholt City Brands Index-GkK conducted over 5,100 interviews worldwide. “City of Lights” was ranked first, displacing London. In the previous ranking, conducted in 2013, Paris ranks third. The study, whose results are published every two years, was conducted in September 2015, shortly before the attacks of 13 November, but a few months after the ones from January. Admired city doesn’t necessarily mean most visited as well. “The attacks did not significantly change the perception of the city,” said Simon Anholt, the creator of the ranking, even though foreign tourists have not thought lately to visit soon Paris because terms like “emergency” and “conflict” are still present in their minds.
“The attacks do not change the reasons why tourists admire the beauty, attractions and cultural life of the city”, concludes Anholt.
Here’s the list with the top 10 cities on the Anholt-GFK ranking for 2015:
- New York
- Los Angeles
- Washington D.C.
