Vienna, Austria's grand capital on the Danube river, recently beat 231 other buzzing cities to be crowned the most liveable city in the world, offering the highest quality of life for the eighth year in a row, according to the Mercer 'Quality of Life' survey.

But you don’t have to live there to appreciate the incredible architecture, history and shopping. Travellers are always astounded by how beautiful the city really is. It has deeply rooted cultural traditions, including classical music, opera, theatre and art.
