transition. Vienna has quietly turned into a global city with modern infrastructure.
Situated on the banks of River Danube, it is a site of great culture, music and art.
Dotted with museums and palaces, Vienna is a haven for history-lovers. Visit the St.
Stephan’s Cathedral to marvel at its 12th century Gothic architecture. The Imperial
Palace, the baroque-style Schonbrunn and Belvedere Palaces, the residence of the
Habsburgs in central Vienna and the Spanish Riding School are also must-visits.
