The City of Vienna
Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria with a population over 2.5 million within the city and metropolitan area. It is also the country’s cultural, economical and political centre. First mentions of the city date back as far as 1137. It was home to many of Austria’s Monarchs, all of whom have left their mark on Vienna and shaped it into the architectural marvel it is today with buildings and structures such as St. Charles Church, castle Schönbrunn or the Ring Boulevard.
