Vienna, Austria

 

Vienna today
Vienna is uniquely known as a city for the young, the carefree, and the intellectually self-challenging. But this is just one of the many facades of this city. Vienna is a city alive with activity, dynamic, frolicking, and rocking. With independent labels, cult-status underground record stores, a vibrant club scene, and multitudes of street performers, the lifestyle here has evolved into a truly electrifying experience for all classes of people.

Today events, cafehouses, historical monuments, concert halls and museums constitute the fame of Vienna.

Vienna back then
Vienna is quite an ancient city. It was founded around 500 BC as a settlement for the Celts. In the first century BC, Vienna became the Roman frontier city, guarding the Old Roman Empire against the barbaric Germanic tribes from the north.
Vienna was the center of the Babenberg Dynasty during the Medieval Period. In 1440 it was chosen as the royal residence city of the Habsburg dynasties, and from here it eventually expanded in size and importance to become the capital city of the Holy Roman Empire. Relics from the Roman era are still recognizable in the present day city center, includi
