Surrounded by dense forests, incredible glacial lakes and acres of vinyards, Austria is one of the gems of central Europe. The majority of its territory is situated in the Alps and it therefore enjoys one of the most impressive panoramic views on the planet. To the west, the Alpine provinces of Tirol and Voralberg are a great tourist attraction. In the East, Styria is famous for its spas and its wine production. Austria is notable for its wide range of cultural and musical offerings. Every summer the Salzburg Festival, the biggest festival of classical music in the world, takes place. Vienna, the capital, is an elegant cosmopolitan city and a must-see for every visitor.
