Many of the significant works to be seen in Vienna, which has been home to the Habsburg Dynasty for years, consist of structures from this period

Being a city of culture and arts, Vienna hosts beautifully preserved historical buildings, magnificent museums in the heart of the city and an excellent opera house, an imposing cathedral and quiet, orderly streets that you can see empty even at the busiest time of the day.

Vienna is a city famous for its palaces, which take you back to the 1500s. Never descended from the top of the list of the most livable cities today, Vienna has been the city where popular artists, scientists, writers and architects lived for years. The most famous composers of classical music Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Franz Schubert, history’s most important scientists Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud, and famous writers Franz Kafka and Stefan Zweig lived in this city. Let us take a look at what is happening in Vienna, which has been the centre of high culture and modernism in Europe since the 1800s, as it can be understood from the fact that it hosted such significant people.


Built as a medieval castle in the 13th century, the Hofburg Palace is used as a museum and the office of the president. There are three statues at the entrance of the palace, and in the middle of these statues are the Austrian soldier and next to them French and Ottoman soldiers. Three sections of the palace are used as museums. The Sisi Museum contains the belongings of Queen Elizabeth (Sisi), the Habsburg dynasty in the Royal Apartments and the silverware collection in the last section.


Located inside the Hofburg Palace, Spanish Riding School is the oldest operating royal riding school in the world. Morning sessions are open to the public.
