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.
Let the collections at Kunsthistorisches Museum and Belvedere Palace capture your imagination. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Imperial Palace (Hofburg) and Schoenbrunn Palace. The adventure continues: browse the eclectic array of goods at Naschmarkt, explore the landscape on two wheels at Danube Bike Path (Donauradweg), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Schottenkirche, and don't miss a visit to Graben and Kohlmarkt.

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Herend Porcelain Store and Book Café - Lotz Hall. Fisherman's Bastion and Shoes on the Danube Promenade Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Budapest to go to Szentendre and see Priest's Island (Pap-sziget), which is approximately 40 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Danube, see the interesting displays at House of Terror, admire the landmark architecture of Matthias Church, and test the waters at a local thermal spa.
