We have found a sunny, cosy studio apartment LITERALLY just down the road from the Eiffel Tower. What more would you need?

The charming apartment is ideal for an escape to the Parisian life; it's both residential and family-oriented.

There are windows throughout the apartment to let in the French sun, and the location is absolutely perfect; the seventh district of Les Invalides

Just picture yourself having a coffee and croissant downstairs, looking out the window at the Parisian aesthetic. We can.

Ireland has been in grips of a housing crisis for far too long, and many young people have uprooted their lives to seek opportunities and good living conditions further afield. 

For the price of a shared bunk bed in a room with four other people in Dublin, you could get a private double bed room in an apartment ijn most EU cities – including the city which has topped the list for the most liveable in the world. 

According to The Economist's Intelligence Global Liveability Index 2018, Vienna, Austria is the best place to live in the entire world. 

Cities were ranked by their challenges to living standards, crime rates, healthcare systems and facilities, social or religious restrictions, culture, threat of terror, weather, education options transport infrastructure, and economy. 

These rankings tallied up to a total final score, leading to a list of the best 10 and worst 10 respectively. 

Vienna topped the charts thanks to it's rich cultural heritage and near perfect health and transport systems. If you're thinking of moving there, a room in a shared three-bedroom apartment 10 minutes from the city centre will set you back about €530 per month.

It's been almost a week since Ross Hanlon disappeared in the Austrian capital, and according to emerging reports, police are now focusing their search on the River Danube.

Ross, who is from Athboy in Co Meath, had travelled to Vienna with a group of friends in order to celebrate the completion of his college exams.

The 21-year-old, who is a Business student at Dundalk IT, was last seen outside Flex nightclub in the Augartenbrucke area of Vienna at approximately 2am last Friday morning.

Speaking to The Independent, a spokesperson for the Austrian police provided an insight into the case's progression.

"The last thing we know is that the student went down the steps to the river and never came back," they said. "The police are searching with police boats along the Danube."

Ross's brother has confirmed the intentions of the police force on Facebook, informing family and friends of developments.

"Just a quick update on Ross, the police are stepping up their search of the river with sonar and more resources," he wrote.

"Thanks to everyone who has helped and all the kind messages of support. Hang in there Ross, we are going to get you home."

Look, we'll lay it on the line here  – Vienna has a reputation for being a bit… well… uptight.

As European destinations go, it's not quite up there with the likes of Berlin, Madrid or Prague, and yet as cities go, it is easily one of the most captivating and breathtaking on the continent.

Chock-full of stunning parks, awe-inspiring architecture and some of the most decadent dining experiences you can imagine, Vienna is a cultural dream.

Austria's capital city straddles the traditional and the modern with an ease not seen in every major city, and can ultimately provide any tourist with both a glimpse into the past and a glance into the future.

And here are 5 hidden gems if the capital city is next on your to-do list.

Beach in the City

It's not often you get to experience beach life in a landlocked country, but Austria manages it.

Along the Danube Canal, tourists visiting Vienna can get their chill on in a deckchair on the sandy beaches which run along the city's canal.

Most people just happen upon the area, but those in the know are a little more savvy.

Kolar

If flatbreads float your boat, you have got to check out Kolar while exploring the city.

Famed for their delicious (and inexpensive) fladenbrote, excellent service, and chill atmosphere, this restaurant is an absolute must.

(Oh, and be sure to check out their Nutella version!)

Kleeblattgasse 5, 1010 Wien, Austria

Downstairs Cocktail Bar

Located just off Mariahilferstrasse – one of the city's main shopping thoroughfares – Downstairs is a cosy bar which sells some of the best cocktails in the city.

Unlike other cocktail bars where a smart dress code is a given, Downstairs is super chill, and the perfect place to grab a few cocktails and kick back, or get competitive over a few games of pool.

And with some cocktails coming in at just €4.70, it's definitely one to keep in mind.

Theobaldgasse 15, 1060 Vienna, Austria

Sigmund Freud Museum

Unlike other museums in the capital, a trip through the Freud's home and place of work makes for a particular intimate experience.

Considered the father of psychoanalysis, the small apartment allows the visitor more than a passing peek into the environment where the famous physician lived and worked.

From personal effects to official plaques, this museum combines the various aspects of Freud's life, and will definitely make an impact.

Berggasse 19, Vienna 1090, Austria

Vienna State Opera

OK, the opera is hardly a hidden gem of Vienna, but the uber-reasonable price at which you can get tickets for some of the world's best-known operas definitely is!

While many tourists might assume they'd have to pay an arm and a leg for a night at the Vienna State Opera in the heart of the city, you can actually get tickets for some shows for as little as… wait for it… €10.

Definitely something to look into when tapping into the cultural side of things!
