Austria

The saga of empires floats on the melodic strains of a Strauss waltz. This “cultural capital” of Europe boasts palaces and opera houses, Mozart and Beethoven. Let it all soak in over a melt-in-your mouth pastry in a Viennese café, in silent meditation in an ancient cathedral, or the snow-capped Alps.
