What do you think we you hear about Vienna, Austria’s capital? Classical music? a historical place that looks similar to Germany and borrows their language?
Vienna is quite a lot what I expected to be; Old, grand, magnificent, a place to see a live performance of music by the experts, Beethoven, Mozart and Strauss.
Second hand shop with LPs of classical music.
Something slightly odd, Austria is land locked and has no coast. That doesn’t stop Wieners (Vienna people) from sun bathing on this erzats beach on a concrete island in a river, which means they can get tanned like a sausage!
This river is much more famous, the Danube!
This sign reminds you of gateways to other European capital cities, Budapest Hungary and Bratislava Slovakia.

Aha! I was thinking more of Vienna by Ultravox from the early 80s 🙂
