One day in Vienna







Vienna is a wonderful place to visit. Its historic buildings, palaces and monuments are reminiscent of an imperialist era as the capital of the Austrian Empire. The Belvedere is a historical building complex consisting of two Baroque palaces the Upper and Lower Belvedere and was built from 1696 – 1719 as a summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy.

But above all, Vienna is also famous for classical music and in the early 19th century, the city was home to many great composers of the classical music era, such as Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Vienna is also the city of the waltz and has been immortalized by the famous Blue Danube Waltz (An der schönen blauen donau) composed by Johann Strauss Jr. Johann Strauss Jr, whose father Johann Strauss Snr was also a composer (famous for the Radetsky March) has become an international Austrian icon...
