Vienna

vienna

Vienna, situated in the heart of Europe, is a vibrant, modern city with an international population of 1.7 million people. With its green, safe environment, Vienna is also a city with very high living standards and it is consistently selected ‘World’s best place to live’ in Mercer’s annual Quality of Living Survey. Excellent health services and infrastructure, affordable housing, high job security, and an increasingly cosmopolitan population make it a highly attractive destination for students and business people alike. They enjoy the combination of a dynamic business, learning and research environment with a well-balanced life-style.
Vienna has something to offer for practically any taste. There are great many cultural and social opportunities ranging from world-renowned classical music venues, magnificent Imperial architecture, famous theaters and festivals to contemporary art and architecture. Arguably, the favorite hang-outs of the Viennese are coffee houses. But the city also features plenty of sports and recreation facilities, colorful markets, and shopping from high-end to vintage, not to mention a diverse and rich nightlife.

 

Vienna’s geographical position makes it an ideal base for visiting many major European cities and places of interest as well as for enjoying the attractive landscapes of various parts of Austria and Central Europe. In addition, the city’s location has meant that it has come to house the headquarters, or important offices, of many international organizations such as the United Nations, OSCE and OPEC. These, of course, can provide interesting internship and employment possibilities for students.
