Vienna is an ideal-typical European city
similar to Barcelona, London, Milan, Paris or Rome, but unlike the
others it is very compact and easy to negotiate. Vienna is referred to
by many as a unique onion, with each of the urban layers surrounding
the oldest historic center being equally important to the overall
flavor of the city. The Austrian capital therefore embraces all the
traditions of a European city, from Roman foundations through to
Gothic, Baroque and Historicism. Tourists are eager to visit Vienna
because of the city's exciting combination of the royal-imperial flair
of the past with the latest trends, the responsible cultivation of a
precious heritage and charming traditions.
