Wellington was selected by Deutsche Bank in a competition of assessing the most suitable cities to live on earth. In the process, the city defeated Edinburgh, Vienna, Melbourne, and Zurich and won first prize. Wellington is among the top candidates on living cost, pollution, climate index, housing price and other indexes closely relating to life and living.

Surrounded by mountains on three of its sides and facing the sea on one side, Wellington is as spectacular as the ancient Colosseum. In addition, the city is also amazing in color, temperament, and inclusiveness. Wellington is, without a doubt, a city you cannot miss when travelling through New Zealand.

Museum of New Zealand

Museum of New Zealand

The Museum of New Zealand is also named Te Papa in Maori, which means a place where treasures are stored if translated into English. The museum is located in Wellington and mainly covers natural science and cultural education. There is an interesting exhibit that displays a king squid, which was captured from the South Pole in 2011. Throughout the years the squid has shrunk, due to it being kept in captivity, to a final length of 4.56 meters. Admission is free, but you need to pay for some exhibitions and the games inside. All kinds of high-quality souvenirs are sold at the shops inside.
