The Konzerthaus in Vienna

Flickr Friday – Vienna

Welcome to Vienna, the city of music. One of the main reasons we love it so much here is the rich cultural history, which can be seen in the diversity of its architecture.  From the Roman Empire to the Austrian to the Austro-Hungarian; in its lifetime Vienna has been the capital to many of the world’s great empires.

As well as being world-renowned for its culture, baroque architecture and the old-fashioned courtly ways of the Viennese, this city of paradoxes is also in fact extremely progressive and modern. This world heritage site (sometimes called an open-air museum) is also a vibrant young city famous for its electronic music scene, underground record stores, street performers and a dynamic Monday to Sunday clubbing scene.

Please enjoy these images of the city of opposites, and have a fantastic weekend.
