Europe’s Imperial City: Exploring Vienna, Austria

Europe’s Imperial City: Exploring Vienna, Austria

Vienna, Austria’s capital city and former royal seat of the Austro-Hungarian empire, is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Due to its imperialist history, the historic districts of Vienna drip in opulence, now accessible to the non-royal among us.
