Vienna
closeVienna, the capital of Austria, boasts an impressive number of palaces, monuments and other landmarks due to its centuries long position as the heart of the Habsburg Empire.
Most of the city's main sights are located in Vienna's compact center or at the boulevard encircling the historic center, which makes it easy to visit the city on foot. Other neighborhoods are easily accessible thanks to the efficient subway.
