About Vienna

  • Vienna, the capital of Austria and one of the most visited cities in Europe, owes its charm and rich history to its fantastic location on the banks of the Danube. It has been the gateway between East and West for centuries, and today is one of Europe's leading economic and cultural headquarters. Vienna, with its historical landmarks and many events, attracts hordes of tourists from all over the world. This city with its cosmopolitan atmosphere and specific charm fascinates visitors.




Vienna's history

  • The Romans called this city Vindobona and remains from Roman times can still be seen downtown. In the Middle Ages, Vienna became an important trading post, especially of ginger and salt. During the Habsburg dynasty, this city developed into the largest economic and cultural center of Europe at that time.

  • The era of Maria Theresa's reign was extremely important to the city, as it then became world famous and glamorous. Even today, the city is full of historic sites in the Baroque and Rococo styles, which bear witness to this.

  • The golden age of the city, however, was the reign of Franz Joseph and his wife Elizabeth, in the second half of the 19th century, when Vienna became a modern city and when the art style - secession developed there. Circular Street was built in 1857 on the site of the city's old walls and this caused the city's rapid development and construction.







Spanish Riding School

  • This school dates from the period of Emperor Maximilian II. It was founded in 1562, when the emperor wanted to show his Lipizzaner horses to his courtesans. It is the only place in the world to cultivate the classic riding style. At shows that sell out very quickly, jockeys and their horses show their skills to the visitors.
