Vienna Travel Guide
Vienna is the capital of the Republic of Austria.Vienna is Austria's primary city, with a population of about 1.7 million and it is by far the largest city in Austria, as well as its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 10th largest city by population in the European Union. Vienna is host to many major international organizations such as the United Nations and OPEC. As the former home of the Habsburg court and its various empires, the city still has the trappings of the imperial capital it once was, and the historic city center is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Traditional Vienna is but one of the many facades of this city; the historic center, a UNESCO world heritage site, is sometimes begrudgingly compared to an open-air museum. But Vienna is also a dynamic young city, famous for its (electronic) music scene with independent labels, cult-status underground record stores, a vibrant Monday through Sunday club scene and multitudes of street performers.
Vienna offers a variety of sightseeing options. The St. Stephan's Cathedral is one of the City's oldest buildings, the Ringstrasse, the former encircling border of the city center was turned into a magnificent boulevard in the 19th century and is definitely worth a walk. A must for tourists is the Schloss Schönbrunn, the former summer seat and residence of the Habsburgs. Vienna has a variety of nightlife options as well the pedestrian zone between the St. Ruprecht's Church and the Bermuda Bräu microbrewery is the one area of the inner city district where relatively loud music and noise is tolerated. Also the First District in general has an abundance of night life options for any budget. Vienna also possesses many park facilities and is one of the greenest cities in the world. The most famous parks are the Stadtpark, the Burggarten and Volksgarten
