Vienna, Austria

Extending along the banks of the Danube River, Austria’s capital served for a long time as the seat of the Holy Roman Empire, and of the Habsburg-Hungarian Monarchy. Rich in historic monuments, Vienna is often also referred to as “The City of Music” – a title bestowed on it because of the numerous famous composers it had given a home to over the years, and because of the first-rate musical events and festivals it stages. This area contains the public buildings dating from the Habsburg Monarchy, elegant private palaces, mansions, parks, and, what can be considered to be the city’s symbol – the St. Stephen’s Cathedral (Stephansdom) with its  87 meters high steeple.
