City of Dreams

The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001.
Schonbrunn Palace and Historic Center of Vienna are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like St. Stephen's Cathedral and Schonbrunner Gardens. The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at Belvedere Palace, make a trip to Judenplatz Holocaust Memorial, take an in-depth tour of Imperial Carriage Museum Vienna, and examine the collection at Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien.
