We know that travelling is not a nice activity to do in the middle of a pandemic, but since we are very optimistic guys right here, we decided to give you a piece of information about the beautiful capital city of Austria. I’m going to show you Vienna, the capital of geniuses like Mozart and Beethoven.

Location

Vienna lies in the country’s east on the Danube river, which makes it more interesting to go there because you can walk across the river while admiring the phenomenal buildings.

History

From the late 19th century to 1938, the city remained a centre of high culture and modernism.

In 1913, Adolf Hitler, Leon Trotsky, and Sigmund Freud all lived within a few miles of each other in central Vienna, some of them becoming regulars at the same coffeehouses.

Religion

According to the 2001 census, 49,2% of Viennese were Catholic, while 25.7% were no religion.
However, this city has shown tolerance to all ethnic and religious minority groups, so you can travel here safely, you’ll be welcomed!

World heritage in danger

In order to high-rise development here, Vienna was moved to UNESCO world heritage in danger list in 2017.

Culture

Vienna has been named the cultural capital-city of Europe for so many years and this is obvious since this city hosted geniuses like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Franz Schubert.
