City Information

Vienna

Blessed with extravagant baroque structures and a romantic vibe, Vienna is the heart of Austria, and the country’s most famous destination. The pride of Vienna is the towering giant that is St. Stephen’s Cathedral, which has stood on the same spot for over eight centuries. The characteristically Gothic cathedral has withstood several wars that have befallen the city, and it is still able to keep its stunning beauty. After exploring the cathedral, don’t hesitate to take the chance to visit the catacombs, where victims of the Great Plague of Vienna were laid to rest. If you’re interested in art and history, check out the Museum of Fine Arts, which includes masterpieces by artists such as Titian, Velasquez, Van Dyke, and Reubens. For those who simply enjoy lounging around, the Schönbrunn Palace is a vast complex with plenty of green zones for picnics.

For those looking to try authentic Viennese goulash, Lugeck and Ofenloch are two famous establishments. For cheaper eats, try Motto in Weiden.

Vienna Hauptbahnhof is the main railway station in the city, offering access to other popular destinations such as Berlin and Munich. Vienna International Busterminal is the main bus station in the Austrian capital, serving carriers such as FlixBus. The city’s main airport is the Vienna International Airport, which is located just 11 miles southeast of the city.

Considered one of Europe’s best-kept secrets, Bucharest boasts a unique look that effortlessly blends elements from the East and the West. To marvel at the city’s unique architecture, head over to the Palace of Parliament, which was built during the communist rule of the country. Blending iconic communist architectural elements with modernist Neoclassicism, the building is a living witness to the country’s controversial era. There are walking tours for interested visitors, and the building also houses Romania’s National Museum of Contemporary Art. For those interested in history or cultural lessons, the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant, with its impressive collection of pottery, certainly is a good choice. For those who simply wish to enjoy a walk among nature, Carol Park is relatively close to the city center, and it rarely gets crowded.

Like most big European cities, the food scene at Bucharest is vibrant and extremely diverse. For those who enjoy authentically Romanian dishes, Casa Doina is a great choice. If you wish to enjoy something more exotic, Divan could be a great choice.

The main bus station in Bucharest is called Bucuresti Militari Bus Station. It is located on the outskirts of the city and it serves as the local hub for FlixBus.
