An excerpt from the article 31 facts about Austria

It is located in the north-eastern part of the country on the Danube. It is a statutory city (its administration is organized according to local law contained in the city statute), at the same time creating a separate federal state. Vienna is an administrative, industrial, commercial, academic, tourist, and cultural center of international importance.

The city was founded around 500 BC as a Celtic settlement. It obtained city rights in 1221, becoming one of the largest and most important cities of the Holy Roman Empire, later the capital of the Empire of Austria, Austria-Hungary, and in 1918, it became the capital of the Republic of Austria.

Vienna, next to Innsbruck and Salzburg, is the city most frequently visited by tourists.
