The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Kunsthistorisches Museum and Historic Center of Vienna. Imperial Palace (Hofburg) and Staatsopernmuseum will appeal to museum buffs. There's still lots to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Naschmarkt, pause for some serene contemplation at Schottenkirche, take a stroll through Graben and Kohlmarkt, and admire the landmark architecture of St. Stephen's Cathedral.
