Vienna

Grandeur and grace radiate throughout Vienna, Austria. As the historical capital of the country it holds the reins as the cultural, economic and political center of the nation. Imperial-style architecture embraces the city, a tradition from the Habsburg Monarchy that ruled from the 13th century up until 1918. Viennese culture is deeply rooted in tradition, seen through examples of choirs and a famed riding school that date back to the 15th century. Music also plays a central role in the city’s history as some of the most distinguished composers have called Vienna home, including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Franz Schubert.
