Vienna is an old city and numerous historic buildings and places are treated with great care here, so in Vienna you will find many beautiful churches and castles, such as St. Ruprecht’s Church, Vatican Church, Schoenbrunn Castle, Belveder Castle, St. Bernard Chapel, Parliament House and Town hall. Just like most capitals, Vienna is home to numerous museums – Historic Museum, several Art Museums, Graphics Museum and Albertine Gallery. The former imperial residence Hofburg is worth close attention. The building of the residence took place in the 13th century.
