Vienna, the largest city in Austria, is known as "The City of Dreams", because it was the home of Sigmund Freud, the famed psychoanalyst. But it takes no analysis to realize that this historic metropolis is teeming with grand parks, castles, restaurants, shops and culture for every psyche... über-or not-so-wealthy. One cannot think about Vienna without music coming to mind. From Mozart, to Beethoven, Mahler to Haydn, to the world-known choirs and operas, Vienna is the source of many of the world's most famous composers, conductors and singers.
