The history of Vienna has more than 3000 years. During the rule of the Habsburg Dynasties the city became the capital and its imperial elegance exists only due to this dynasty. Vienna is the world famous music center. A lot of talented musicians lived and worked there: Mozart, Beethoven, Hayden, Schubert, Brahms and many others. It's also the city of the legendary Vienna Boys' Choir and various musical events, such as the New Year Concert or the Annual Ball in the Vienna Opera House.
The architecture of Vienna contains all the basic styles starting from gothic and Renaissance and ending with postmodernism. The old Ruprechtskirche of the Roman style, gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral – the symbol of Austria and Vienna, the Karlskirche – all they create an unforgettable look of the city. Modern style is also noticeable in Vienna: the Karlsplatz station, Secession, the Kirche am Steinhof by Otto Wagner.
