Vienna

My favourite European capital, the ‘City of Music’ was founded by the Romans in 15 BC and they referred to it as Vindobona. In the 15th century, it became the residency of the Habsburg family and the center of Austria and later of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Today it has almost 1.8 million inhabitants and attracts 7 million tourist every year. I’ve been to Vienna (or as the Austrian people say it, Wien) many times.

Here are all the places I visited and recommend for you to see as well:
