Originally settled by Celtic tribes, the land that was known as the kingdom of Noricum, and now Austria, was incorporated by the Roman Empire into a Roman province. Bavarians, Slavs and Avars invaded the area following the collapse of the Roman Empire. Christianity was introduced circa AD 788 by Charlemagne, King of the Franks. Ostarrichi dates to 996, and is the first record of the name Austria. From the late 13th century until World War I, the area was ruled by the House of Habsburg. Archduke Franz Ferdinand‘s assassination in 1914 was the catalyst for World War I. Anschluss, or the annexation of Austria into Nazi Germany, occurred on March 12, 1938. During World War II, Austria was renamed briefly to “Ostmark”. Following World War II, the city was divided into American, British, French, and Soviet zones. Austria regained full independence on May 15, 1955 by way of the Austrian State Treaty.
Vienna, with a population of around 1.9 million people, is the largest city and federal capital of Austria. Referred to also as the City of Music, Vienna hosts a number of classical and contemporary music festivals. The last bastion of the 19th-century ball, Vienna has a long-standing tradition of ballroom dancing. A Viennese carnival season highlight is the Opera Ball, which takes place at the Vienna State Opera on the Thursday before Ash Wednesday. Known for its high quality of life, Austria’s capital has been ranked multiple times as the world’s most livable city, and is one of the wealthiest areas in the European Union. Vienna attracts over 6.8 million tourists annually. It has an oceanic climate, with summer high temperatures averaging around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and winter highs in the upper 30s. Major points of interest include Hofburg Palace, Schönbrunn Palace, Tiergarten Schönbrunn Zoo, Riesenrad Viennese Giant Ferris Wheel, Burgtheater, Theater an der Wien, Wiener Staatsoper, Volksoper, Wiener Musikverein, Wiener Konzerthaus, spanische Hofreitschule, Albertina, Belvedere, Leopold Museum, KunstHausWien, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Naturhistorisches Museum, Technisches Museum Wien, Zentralfriedhof, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Deutschordenskirche, Jesuitenkirche and Karlskirche.
