Austria - moving around the country
International air communication is well-developed in Austria. Many airports accept domestic flights, but they are less popular. The largest and most significant in Austria is the airport in Schwechat. It is 18 kilometers away from the capital and welcomes both standard and wide-body aircrafts. In 2006, a new terminal was opened, where exclusively VIP aircrafts and charter flights land. Since then, the airport in Schwechat has become one of the busiest in the whole country. The air harbor has shops and souvenir stalls, offices of international banks and currency exchange, cafes and restaurants of various classes, as well as baby care rooms and specially equipped facilities for disabled people.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Austria
All Saints' Day on November 1, Day of the Referendum on October 10, and National Day on October 26 are celebrated too. A birthday is an important event for any Austrian. The Austrians are very welcoming and hospitable, but they honor the etiquette and love formalities. If a person is invited, then most likely a full meal consisting of several dishes will be offered. Refusal and leaving early is not polite. Even an invitation to tea or coffee means that there will be a lot of treats on the table, including desserts, pastries and even low-alcohol beverages. You can also take a small gift with you. It can be a bottle of wine, some food or anything else. At parties, it is usually accepted that guests take their own snacks and choose beverages. Usually there is no official feast with compulsory toasts. Each one drinks as much as he or she likes. Many holidays are family ones, so inviting guests to dinners has long been a part of tradition.
