HELLO & WELCOME TO VIENNA! HERE ARE SOME HIGHLIGHTS YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO MISS!
Vienna is the capital of the Republic of Austria and also one of the nine Austrian provinces. With about 1.9 million inhabitants, Vienna, located on the Danube, is the most populous major city in Austria, the second largest in the German-speaking world, and the sixth largest city in the European Union. Around 2.8 million people live in the Vienna metropolitan area - this corresponds to around one third of the total Austrian population.
Architecturally, Vienna is still characterized above all by the buildings around the Vienna Ringstrasse from the Wilhelminian period, but also by Baroque and Art Nouveau. Through its role as imperial capital and residence city of the Austrian Empire from 1804, Vienna became a cultural and political center of Europe in the 19th century. Around the year 1910, when Vienna was still the capital of the Habsburg Monarchy, the city counted over two million inhabitants as the fifth largest city in the world.
