Vienna is indeed a beautiful city, it bears traces of the imperial grandeur, it is a music capital of the world and the city of balls where beautifully dressed couples dance to the sounds of the eternal music of Strauss. It is charming at any time of the year, winter and summer, spring and autumn.
Traditional Vienna is but one of the many façades of this city, the downtown area of which is a UNESCO world heritage site and sometimes compared to an open-air museum.
There are beautiful museums; Belvedere, Albertina, Kunsthistorische Museum and many others. But Vienna is also a young dynamic city, famous for its music scene with independent labels and a vibrant club scene.
Vienna is famous for the Mozart House, Third Man Tour, Apfelstrudel, and the Wiener Scnitzel. Vienna hosted the Habsburg court for several centuries, first as the Imperial seat of the Holy Roman Empire, then the capital of the Austrian Empire, and later of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which finally fell in 1918 with the abdication of the last Emperor Karl I. The court tremendously influenced the culture that exists here even today: there are many balls which take place here every year, you can find here Imperial Bakeries, Imperial Riding School and Imperial Palaces. Vienna’s residents can be equally modern and progressive as well as extremely old-fashioned.
One of the landmarks of Vienna is the Film Museum, where you can watch classical old movies and Burg Kino which shows The Third Film every day and if you like adventures you can even visit the underground sewage where Orson Welles was running when he played his best role; the part of Harry Lime.
