The elegant capital Vienna is one of Europe's most popular destinations for a city trip. Austria is not a very big country, but the landscape of this mountainous country is incredibly varied. Think of dense forests, ancient glacial lakes or old spas bordered by acres of vineyards. And of course the magnificent Alps, who’s soaring peaks and panoramic views might just be the most breathtaking in the world. Austria was a great and powerful empire in the 18th and 19th centuries, and it still shows in the graceful cities and towns where the past is integrated with the present. Sublime baroque architecture, epic monuments and unspoiled medieval old towns tell the tale of Austria’s glorious past.
