Vienna has been voted 3rd best city in the world by Condé Nast Traveller and is the largest city in Austria. As a capital, it is a cultural, economic, and political centre and is known to have one of the highest qualities of living worldwide.
Vienna developed from early Celtic and Roman settlements into a Medieval and Baroque city, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It played an essential role as a leading European music centre, from the great age of Viennese Classicism through the early part of the 20th century.
Hofburg Imperial Palace is a palace located in Vienna, Austria, that has housed some of the most powerful people in European and Austrian history, including the Habsburg dynasty, rulers of the Austro-Hungarian empire. It currently serves as the official residence of the President of Austria. It was the Habsburgs' principal winter residence, as the Schönbrunn Palace was their preferred summer residence.
The best way to get around Vienna is to use the city's public transport network. The approximately 937 km route network comprises 5 underground lines, 28 tram lines and 90 bus routes, to take you comfortably and reliable across Vienna.
Like other members of the European Monetary Union (EMU), Austria’s currency is the euro, which is divided into 100 cents. There are coins for one, two, five, 10, 20 and 50 cents and for €1 and €2. Notes come in denominations of €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200 and €500.
