Fez- Morocco’s city of Ifrane was elected the world’s second cleanest city according to a survey conducted by MBC Times, which listed the world’s 12 cleanest cities.
Canada’s Calgary city topped the list as the world’s cleanest city.
Known for its mountainous nature and cold weather in winter, as well as for its skiing stations, Ifrane came ahead of cities such as Ottawa, Helsinki and Singapore.
The study likened Ifrane to a Swiss village and praised the “optimal” quality of its air, its spring water sources, its waterfalls, as well as its national park.
“Ifrane is a stay that you won’t forget. It is reminiscent of certain Swiss villages! It is the perfect place to top up your reserves at altitude. When the weather is good, walk close to the Vittel spring and its waterfalls shaded by the poplar and maple trees,” said the study.
“Its national park contains one of the largest cedar plantations in the world, where mischievous monkeys, which are used to seeing people, will welcome you. The lakes and rivers are crammed with pike and trout,” it added.
The list of the world’s cleanest cities is as follows:
1) Calgary (Canada)
2) Ifrane (Morocco)
3) Helsinki (Finland)
4) Honolulu (Hawaii)
5) Wellington (New Zealand)
6) Adelaide (Australia)
7) Kobe (Japan)
8) Ottawa (Canada)
9) Reykjavik (Iceland)
11) Curitiba (Brazil)
12) Brisbane (Australia).
