Vienna is slowly becoming one of the must-see cities in Europe, largely because of its historical architecture and artistic legacy. The city, Austria’s capital, stretches alongside the Danube River and is known as the “City of Music,” thanks to its longtime contributions to the art and its many theaters and opera houses. If you’re not inclined to spend your vacation at a classical opera, you can sightsee at the baroque Schonbrunn and Belvedere Palaces, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, and the 826-foot-high Danube Tower. When it comes to nightlife, try to score an invite to Extrazimmer, a speakeasy cocktail bar that requires some digging to access. Naschmarkt — Vienna’s largest market, with over 120 stalls and a Saturday flea market — is also worth a visit.
