In the July/August issue of The Monocle, Copenhagen is yet again ranked number one in the magazine's `Quality of Life Survey 2014’, making Copenhagen the first three-time winner.

The eighth annual Quality of Life results see the Danish capital defend its top rank thanks to an unbeatable combination of culture, tolerance, snappy public transport, sun appreciation, green space, global connectivity and clever architecture.

Monocle celebrates the triple victory of the city “that has the ability to change depending on what you need”

Since 2007 the Monocle has published an annual list of livable cities and Copenhagen has been ranked 1st in 2008, 2013 and again here in 2014. Between 2008 and 2013, Copenhagen was solidly placed as number three on the list by the renowned lifestyle magazine
