Boasting Baroque castles and gardens mixed with monuments and parks, the architecture of Historic Center of Vienna, a World Heritage Site, reflects significant cultural and political periods in Europe. Most notably, the center's architecture visually represents the Middle Ages, the Baroque period, and the Grunderzeit. This site was the home of Celtic and Roman settlements before developing into a Medieval and then Baroque city. With the Ringstrasse and its historic buildings and monuments, Vienna's historic core is full of important Austrian museums and government buildings.
