With a population of over 1.75 million, Vienna is largest city of Austria and is the nation’s capital. It is at the cultural, political and economic heart of Austria and is home to a number of international organisations including OPEC and the United Nations, as well as playing host to a large number of international congresses and conventions. It is sometimes referred to as the ‘City of Music,’ because of the importance of its musical heritage, having been a leading European music centre in the past. Plus, it is acknowledged as the ‘City of Dreams’ for being the birthplace of the world’s first psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud. It is definitely worth sampling the unique culture of Vienna during your stay.
