Vienna is a European city with origin in the Roman Empire. Previously it was one of the biggest centers of influence in Europe. It became the capital of Austria after the first World War.
There are a variety of cultural events hosted in this city. The city also hosts a prominent equestrian event called the Vienna Masters – something important in Austria. Various traditional concerts are organized in the various churches and cathedrals in Vienna for their acoustics.
When I visited the city I wanted to go to some of the most important touristic locations. Here’s some that I managed to visit in my 2-day trip.
1. St. Stephens Cathedral
An example of the Gothic style in the XVII century’s architecture. It’s bell occasionally rings on special events, like new years.
2. Hofburg Palace
