Vienna is the capital of the Republic of Austria and by far its most populous city. It is by far the largest city in Austria and the country's artistic, cultural, economic and political centre....

The large historic city centre of Vienna filled with monuments to its imperial past is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Vienna has a rich history as the capital city of the monarchy, and thus, there is an abundance of historical buildings and museums. Its architecture is typical of the eclectic, historicist style called “Ring Road Style” of the 1860s to 1890s. Built in the style of the Renaissance according to plans by Heinrich von Ferstel, the MAK- Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art is the first museum building on the “Ring Road Style”. The Schloss Schönbrunn palace, a part of the UNESCO World heritage list, is located in the Outer West area.
