Vienna had been the Capital of the Habsburg Empire for centuries, with the imperial residence of the powerful Habsburg dynasty dominating the history of Central Europe. Representative buildings, wide avenues and elegant parks throughout the city are all gems of this great historical heritage. The imperial city hosted lots of musicians and artists such as Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Klimt or Schiele whose artistic legacy continues to be faithfully preserved by the city’s fantastic concert halls and museums up to high standards.
Hungary’s history is closely linked to Vienna; it is no wonder that there are a number of Hungary-related monuments and memories from various eras throughout the city. For example, the crown that István Bocskai, the Prince of Transylvania, received from the Turkish Sultan is kept in the Imperial Treasury at the Hofburg Palace.
