If there is a place that I’ve always loved, for its elegance, its history, its traditions and charm, this place is Vienna. The city on the Danube, is a real pleasure for the senses, not only for its buildings and charming streets, but also for its location, embraced by the Alps.
Being one of the oldest capital in Europe has served to Vienna to offer one of the most spectacular architecture that we see. Has been key to most of the dynasties that have reigned in Europe, emblematic place of princes and emperors, famous for its music, waltz. Has seen over itself to great figures of history: the Habsburgs, Napoleon, Hitler … all with a fixed idea in mind: to conquer Vienna.
The city of Vienna, is very attractive for its music, its colors trams, restaurants with lively classical music, parks and forests surrounding the city, where bars Heuriger or serve only wine, its architectural styles, big buildings. An elegant city, colorful, mixing Gothic with Baroque, Art Nouveau with the Romanesque, the broad range of museums, including the newly established Museum of Music. And his friendly, warm, relaxed.
