Vienna is one of the world's most beautiful, historic cities, brimming with nostalgia and with all the grand architecture of a once glorious empire, for three centuries it was home to the Austrian monarchy. The architectural image of the city is dominated by the Ringstrasse, a four kilometre long boulevard which encircles the centre of the city. It was under the supervision of Maria Teresia that the magnificent royal residence, the Schonbrunn Palace, was completed. More than seventeen hundred beautifully-preserved rooms afforded the large Imperial family much freedom of movement and its magnificent interior decor is one of the most lavish of its time. The Palace Grounds contain the outstanding Neptun-Fountain and, at the highest point, the Gloriette, from which the entire palace grounds are visible as well as the charming Schonbrunn Zoo, the oldest animal enclosure in the world. St. Stephen's Cathedral dominates the centre of Vienna and, not far away behing the State Opera House, is the venerable Hotel Sacher with its old Viennese coffee house. Johann Strauss, the Vienna Boys Choir, Lipizzaner horses and Jeurige wine ... Vienna is a city of irresistible charm.
