Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria, and one of the nine states of Austria. Its cultural, economic and political centre and lies in the east of Austria, close to borders of the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.
Vienna is said to be 'The city of Dreams' because it was home to the world's first psycho-analyst Sigmund Freud.The city's roots lie in early Celtic and Roman settlements that transformed into a Medieval and Baroque city, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The historic centre of Vienna is rich in architectural ensembles, including Baroque castles and gardens, and the late-19th-century Ringstrasse lined with grand buildings, monuments and parks.
If you currently think your neighbourhood 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 Imperial Palace. And if you have a chance, catch a performance at the State Opera House—it’s not to be missed.
