General information: Vienna is the capital of Austria, with 2 million inhabitants. (2.5 with surroundings) It’s a multicultural city, where hundreds of thousands of people from other countries come to work. The official currency is the euro, which is used in a big part of the European Union. The city is definitely prepared to receive tourists, so you will feel very comfortable. The official language is German, but most of the people speak English.
Where to eat?
You definitely have to eat the Vienna steak and a Sacher cake for dessert. It’s the most famous of the Austrian gastronomy and yes, it’s expensive, but it’s worth it. I ate Sacher cake in the café Aida and it was great, with a wonderful view also. And the rest of the food is also expensive, it doesn’t even depend so much on whether you are in the center or not, it’s still expensive. The most recommendable, if you don’t have money, is to buy salads and things like that in the supermarket.
