Time travel in Vienna: three eras shape the face of Vienna’s historic centre

Vienna’s historic center, in its unity, is considered one of the most beautiful city landmarks in Europe and was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2001. Three eras left their mark on the former residence of the Habsburgs: the Middle Ages with Gothic St Stephen’s Cathedral, one of Vienna’s landmarks, the Baroque whose most important achievement is the Imperial Palace with its sumptuous cupolas. And, the Ringstraßen era of the late nineteenth century, when splendid buildings as the Vienna State Opera, Museums, the Parliament and the City Hall were built along an impressive Boulevard replacing the former city walls. – Vienna’s city centre is home to monumental buildings, lush parks, narrow alleyways and wide boulevards, which combine with lively traditions to create a unique atmosphere.
