Vienna


Vienna is the largest city in Austria, with an estimated population of 4,284,379 as of 2006.

Vienna traces its history back to before the time of Christ. The first settlement in the area was founded by Celtic tribes at approximately 500 BC. Later, when the Romans conquered the area, it became the Roman city of "Vindobona". During the Middle Ages, the city became a center of Babenberg and then Habsburg power - and it was outside the city that Ottoman invasions of Europe were stopped in 1529 and 1683. Since 1805, except for the when Nazi Germany annexed Austria (German: Anschluss Österreichs), Vienna has been the capital of successive Austrian states: the Austrian Empire, Austria-Hungary, and then Austria.

Today Vienna is also an important center for international organizations and institutions. There are many United Nations offices in the city, and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is based in Vienna, as are the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), and the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).

Product Description:

Congratulations! You’ve found The Ultimate Travel Guide To Vienna.

Why You Need Lost Travelers

First we would like to thank you for considering Lost Travelers as your guide book. Allow us to explain our beginnings, and the reason we created Lost Travelers. Lost Travelers was created due to one simple problem that other guides on the market did not solve; loss of time. Considering it’s the 21st century and everything is available on the internet why do we still purchase guidebooks? To save us time! That’s right.

Since the goal is to be efficient and save time, we did not understand why there are several guidebooks on the market that are of 500 to 1000 page’ long. We do not believe one needs that much bluff to get an overview of the location and some remarkable suggestions. Considering many guidebooks on the market are filled with “suggestions” that were sponsored for, we have decided to take a different approach and provide our travelers with an honest opinion and decline any sort of sponsorship. This simply allows us to cut off any nonsense and create our guides the Lost Travelers style.

Our mission is simple; to create an easy to follow guide book that outlines the best of activities to do in our limited time at the destination. This easily saves you your most valuable asset; your time. You no longer need to spend hours looking through a massive book, or spend hours searching for information on the internet as we have completed the whole process for you. The best part is we provide you our e-guides for one third the price of the leading brand, and our paper copy for only half the price.
