Vienna, Austria

Traveling from Brno, Czech Republic to Vienna was a easy train ride. Vienna is an absolutely beautiful city located in western Austria. It has very much a German feel to the city yet with its own unique identity. Compared to Czech, Vienna brought back the orderly and enjoyable city life. The mass transit and biking around the city made getting around a breeze. The center of Vienna is home to some amazing architecture and buildings. I had to opportunity to visit Schoenbrunn Palace, St. Stephens Cathedral, and the Opera House which were all a sight to behold. The nightlife in Vienna was also very vibrant and everyone I met there was extremely friendly. Vienna is a city where you just want to spend the days walking around and exploring the city. It seems that no matter where you walk or what road you turn down you will quickly run into another amazing building or statue to look at. One of the best parts of Vienna is that although the Austro-Hungarian Empire was destroyed as a result of World War I, neither that war or World War II, had done any real damage to the city itself. Unlike other cities in the region, Vienna's oldest and most historic building remain completely intact in their original form.
