Vienna, Austria’s capital city, is located in the East of Austria. Vienna has 1.9 million inhabitants, of which almost 180,000 are students. Vienna’s close proximity to Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary makes it a great starting point for exploring the neighbouring European countries by bus, train or even by boat.
Austria’s capital owes its nickname “the City of Music” to many famous composers and musicians who lived and worked in the city. Vienna is also known for its monumental imperial architecture, an abundance of beautiful palaces, its coffee house culture and its high quality of life. The Donauinsel, a long artificial island in the Danube river and many other parks offer numerous opportunities for leisure activities.
