Vienna – @sascha1107
“Nothing is more beautiful than a cozy evening in a coffeehouse with the music aloud in Vienna.”
Vienna is an Austrian state. It is the capital of the Republic of Austria and by far the largest city in Austria with its population of more than 1.7 million. It is Austria’s cultural, economic, and political center. The city has the trappings of the imperial capital it once was, and the historic city center is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Austria’s imperial capital offers a unique blend of imperial traditions and stunning modern architecture. It is famous for its cultural events, imperial sights, coffee houses, cozy wine taverns, and the very special Viennese charm.
Vienna’s history dates back to the first post-Christian century when the Romans established the military camp Vindobona. Today’s cityscape is characterized by the abundance of Baroque buildings created mostly under the rule of Empress Maria Theresia and Emperor Franz Joseph, who was largely responsible for the monumental architecture. Vienna owes much of its international fame to the many celebrated composers who lived and worked here including Straub, Mozart, Beethoven, and Haydn. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the world’s best, the Staatsoper one of the world’s leading Opera houses, and the Vienna Boys choir one of the world’s most famous. Vienna has established itself as a great musical metropolis.
One of the Habsburgs’ most dazzling Rinsgstrasse palaces, the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, houses the imperial art collection. It’s packed with priceless works by Old Masters and treasures including one of the world’s richest coin collections. Behind the Hofburg, the former imperial stables have been transformed into the innovative Museums Quartier, with a diverse ensemble of museums, showcasing 19th- and 20th-century Austrian art at the Leopold Museum to often-shocking avant-garde works at the contemporary MUMOK.
Plan a trip to Vienna and experience the best imperial culture of Austria. There are direct flights available from India and the official currency is the Euro (1 EUR= 85.52INR). If you currently think your neighborhood coffee shop is nice, you might want to stay out of Vienna’s coffeehouses. After you’ve gotten used to these palatial, yet welcoming cafes—and their delicious coffee and Sacher torte—your local café will pale in comparison. Between coffee breaks, visitors can explore Vienna’s Schonbrunn Palace and the Imperial Palace. And if you have a chance, catch a performance at the State Opera House—it’s not to be missed.
