It is one of the world's landlocked countries, bordered to the north by the Czech Republic and Germany, to the east by Hungary and Slovakia, to the south by Slovenia and Italy, and to the west by Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Austria's capital and largest city is Vienna, as well as one of its nine states. The country is best known for its historic palaces and architectural masterpieces, but Austria also boasts of beautiful landscapes that change dramatically, traditional coffee houses, music festivals, and other tourist attractions.

What to see & do

Schönbrunn Palace - One of Austria's most important architectural, historical, and cultural monuments is the 1,441-room Rococo palace in modern Vienna that was the former imperial summer residence. The palace is also one of Austria's most popular tourist destinations, as it offers not only its great architectural beauty, and impressive gardens, but also in the palace grounds are a maze and labyrinth and Tiergarten Schönbrunn, the oldest zoo in the world. The palace and its gardens were also featured in several films, such as the Bond movie The Living Daylights (1987), The Great Race (1965) and A Breath of Scandal (1960).

Sankt Anton am Arlberg - Advanced skiers looking for a challenge might want to check out the Sankt Anton am Arlberg or St. Anton, the village and ski resort in the state of Tyrol. The resort is not exclusively for skiing; trekkers and mountaineers will also be impressed with the trails. Other activities include snowboarding, tobogganing, paragliding, climbing, and even going for a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh.

St. Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna - The cathedral better known by its German name Stephansdom is the seat of the Archbishop of Vienna, as well as the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna. It is the most significant religious structure in the city, easily recognisable due to its multi-coloured tile roof and Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Inside the cathedral are several formal chapels, tombs, catacombs, and crypts, and several altars. The chapels found in the cathedral are the following; St. Katherine's Chapel, St. Barbara's Chapel, St. Eligius' Chapel, St. Bartholomew's Chapel, The Chapel of the Cross, and St. Valentine's Chapel.
