44 Fascinating Color Photos Capture Street Scenes of Vienna From Between the 1950s and ‘70s

Vienna is the national capital, largest city, and one of nine states of Austria. Vienna is Austria's primate city, and its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 7th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union.

Until the beginning of the 20th century, it was the largest German-speaking city in the world. Vienna is host to many major international organizations, including the United Nations, OPEC, and the OSCE. The city is located in the eastern part of Austria and is close to the borders of Czechia, Slovakia, and Hungary. These regions work together in a European Centrope border region.

Vienna is well known for having played a pivotal role as a leading European music centre, from the age of Viennese Classicism through the early part of the 20th century. The historic centre of Vienna is rich in architectural ensembles, including Baroque palaces and gardens, and the late-19th-century Ringstraße lined with grand buildings, monuments and parks.

Vienna is also known for its high quality of life, and considered one of the world's most liveable cities.
