 Vienna, Austria

Vienna, Austria is known as the spirit of Austria's most biggest history that is still alive. This was also the time of the Austrian's Empire, Vienna is the capital of this empire. It was in 500 BC when Vienna was made a Celtic settlement, this is also when it all began. Vienna became Roman in 15 BC and was called "VIndobona". Vienna was also the capital of the Babenberg Dynasty in the Middle Ages. The Hasburg Dynasty took over in 1440 as Vienna then became their residence. There are 23 different districts for Vienna which all consist of their own names such as Innere Stadt, Leopoldstadt, Landstrasse, Wieden, Margareten, and many others.

The Innere Stadt which stands for inner city, is the heart and historical part of Vienna and was once surrounded by a huge city wall. The wall was taken out in 1857 and a road was put in that is called "Ringstrasse" and is used to get around the city of Vienna. All along the "Ringstrasse" there were parks, buildings, and monuments built. A few of the buildings along that road consist of the Rathaus, the Burgtheater, the University, the Parliament, and the State Opera. Some of the most famous sites and attractions in Vienna include the Stradtpark and Belveldere Park along with its baroque style castle.

Vienna is filled with many historical sites that are easily recognized such as grand imperial palaces and bombastic baroque interiors, museums, and parks. A lot of people get so caught up in the beauty of the buildings and parks that they forget about how Vienna is one of Europe's most dynamic urban spaces. There is the MuseumsQuartier which holds some of the world's most influential contemporary art. There are also outside courtyards that are packed with people drinking and chatting on beautiful summer evenings. Restaurants surround the rim of the facade while people enjoy some great wine and food.

Vienna is the capital of the Republic of Austria as well as one of the nine states of Austria. Vienna is the primary city of Austria and by far the largest city in Austria. The name Vienna is from the English language, it is also called Wien which is from the German language. Vienna was first founded in 500 BC but during the 13th century it became a threat from the Mongolian Empire which also took over much of China and Russia. The Religion of Vienna is Roman Catholic, some of the Roman Catholic churches include the Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathedral), the Karlskirche ( St. Charles' Church), and the Votivkirche.

The Belvedere in Austria

Attractions in Austria

The Belvedere is a compromise between two amazing baroque mansions facing each other from across a beautiful garden. In 1693 there was some land purchased beyond the city walls which was turned into a park with elaborate water features and fountains. Then in 1714 the Prince had the lower part of the Belvedere built with a beautiful Marmorsaal which is a marble hall, the Prunkgalerie and the Spiegelsaal which is the mirror hall. The upper part of the Belvedere was built in 1721 with the reception room, conference hall, coffee room, mirror cabinet, and much more. The upper level also has one of Austria's most popular galleries.  

The Alpine Zoo is located just 727 meters above sea level which puts it at the highest zoo in the world. This zoo only holds animals from the Alpine region unlike many other zoos. There are over 2,000 different types of species which range from golden cockerel to mammoth bison. Some of the animals play in the water with many different types of colorful fish that can be viewed in the cold water aquarium. The zoo has park rangers who rescue the endangered animals and return them to their natural habitat. Most likely if visitors see an eagle flying in the sky, it is from one of the park rangers who rescued it from the Alpine Zoo.

The Wasserspiele Hellbrunn is a very unique attraction. Visitors like to see the famous trick fountains that are located in the Hellbrunn Palace. It is an exciting attraction with grottoes, fountains, floating sculptures, and sudden spits of water from behind the bushes and trees. The Wasserspiele has a baroque style and shows much extravagance. This is a great attraction for kids especially with the magical water spouts and light show, adults like it too as long as they don't mind getting wet. Some visitors do bring a change of clothes just incase they don't like to get wet. The price of this attractions also includes the admission to Schloss Hellbrunn as well.

The Stephansdom also known as "Steffl" is one of the most popular gothic cathedrals in Austria. It was constructed right in the heart of Vienna during the 12th century, it was then renovated into the Gothic style during 1304-1433. The Northern Tower was redesigned with the Renaissance aesthetics during 1579 as the interior was given the baroque style and the tower stands at 70m. The cathedral was burnt down during World War II but has been repaired since then. It is now used for special occasions such as to ring in the new year. The cathedral also holds the remains of 11,000 people in the catacombs which all visitors can see.

The Eisriesenwelt Werfen in Austria

Historic Attractions in Austria

The Festung Hohensalzburg (Hohensalzburg Fortress) can be seen from almost anywhere in Salzburg due to it being the city's major landmark. The original building of the fortress was constructed during 1077 due to a conflict between the Pope and the Emperor. This castle is one of the best preserved for its size in Central Europe. Inside of the castle there are two different museums, one of the museums is a Puppet Museum and other is the Fortress Museum. There are escalators that take visitors up to the castle but it is said walking up to the castle is a much better choice due to the views of the city.

      The Museum of the Future which is also called Ars Electronica has been around for 30 years and the remains still appear to be undiminished. The focus is never one just one thing without the other, the focus is always on nature, technology, and society all at the same time. This museum is very unique with its bold architectural statement. None of the buildings edges are parallel, everything inside seems to be skewed, almost as if everything is running together. Inside there is 3,000 m2 of space for the exhibits and 1,000 that is dedicated to R&D. There is plenty of space for seminars and conferences as well. Of course there is food and beverages and best of all there is a 1,000 m2 plaza that has open air events.

The Eisriesenwelt Werfen was founded by Alexander von Mork. It was in 1920 when the first so called "old researcher hut" was established. This attraction is very interesting for adults and children, it is very fascinating to walk through the ice caves and see the magnificent icicles. It was in the late 18th century and early 19th century that the sidewalk for visitors was built. Guests take a cablecar up to the top where the guests get on track to the ice caves. Guests are told to wear comfortable walking shoes and warm clothes. At the entrance of the cave's the visitors are given miner's lamps, other than the miner's lamps there are luminous lights that light up the ice sculptures inside the caves.

The Sigmund Freud Museum has a Contemporary Art Collection by many great artists such as Joseph Kosuth which was realized in 1989. Joseph Kosuth and Peter Pakesch came together and in recognition of Sigmund Freud they got many artists to donate one of their works of art to the museum. Some of the current exhibitions right now at the museum include Ferdinand Schmutzer: Freud and His Era in Portraits, Politics, Culture and Science, Schmutzer's Working Methods, Ferdinand Schmutzer (1870-1928), and many other that were composed by many fine artists.
