Historic Center of Vienna

●   # Rank

Austria has nine sites that have been designated as World Heritage by UNESCO and the Vienna Historic Center is the one that was inscribed as a world heritage site in 2001. The architectural significance of this historical landmark is widely recognized. More specifically, the Middle Ages, the Baroque, and the Grunderzeit are all represented in the city's historic Center in Vienna, Austria. 

The music tradition in Vienna is also an important cultural factor in the development of the city's unique character. Throughout the decades, from the 1600s through the 1900s, Vienna served as a training ground for many well-known musicians. 

Vienna's Historic Center is also a living memorial to the Habsburg family, who governed much of Central Europe from 1273 until 1918. To be precise, it was Emperor Frederick III who changed Vienna from a medieval market town into an Imperial residence. Because of this, more affluent artists and aristocrats from all over the world flocked to the city. 

The Hofburg and the Stephansdom are two buildings from Vienna's Habsburg era that have survived to the present day.
