An air of the glorious past still hangs palpably over Vienna. Visible Cities Vienna, the latest title in this successful new series, provides all the cultural and historical background that the visitor needs, from the Holy Roman Empire to the present day, and everything in between. Famous names people these pages: Mozart, Freud, Klimt, Schiele, Prince Eugene of Savoy and a palaceful of Habsburgs, to name only a few. Selective entries on hotels and restaurants, musical venues and museums, religious monuments and coffee houses complete the offering.
Illustrations: Full colour throughout with photographs, reproductions, maps and floor plans.
