VIENNA MINI INTRO
the austrian capital vienna is a large city located at the river danube, east of the alps mountain chain.
settlement in the vienna area began 500 b.c., by celts. in 15 b.c. the roman empire fortified a town they called "vindobona". crucial historic events happened in 1529 and 1683 when the ottoman army tried to reap vienna yet failed. in the 19th century vienna was a powerhouse in europe.
in the following, a set of selected paintings, maps and pictures shall provide an impression of this famous city.
just one additional remark - there are many famous vienna citizens, above all (in my view) beethoven, freud, hundertwasser, mozart.....
