City of Dreams
The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001. Austria's multifaceted capital has earned itself several nicknames. Vienna is often referred to as the "City of Music" because of its impressive contribution to music history, most notably the renowned Viennese classicism of the early 20th century. Those who call Vienna the "City of Dreams" invoke the city's famed psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud, and his revolutionary ideas on the interpretation of dreams. The legacy of the Habsburg dynasty shines through Vienna’s architecture. Historical buildings blend with contemporary additions, and the city enjoys an up-and-coming food scene and a thriving museum quarter.
