In the City Centre of Vienna you will find a mix of neo-Classical, Jugendstil and Baroque buildings

A scene on Michaelerplatz in the historic city centre of Vienna. Styles of centuries merge into one within a few blocks: Medieval courts, Gothic churches, Baroque facades, neo-Classical palaces and a dash of Jugendstil anywhere. It is shocking to experience how well heterogeneity on that scale can blend to a harmonic completeness. Once a capital for an empire. Now a top-notch, modern European metropolis. The old town of Vienna is now protected as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
