I lived in Austria in the late 90’s for two years. That was a very special time in my life. Austria is one of the most beautiful countries that I have ever visited. The official language is of Austria is German. The country is pretty small, compare to U.S. to get an idea, state of Texas is about eight times bigger than Austria. The country became popular in the United States, though movies like “The Sound of Music” and characters such as Mozart and ex-California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. I specially love visiting Austria in the winter, as the small tucked away villages combined with lots of snow and oaks forests seem right out of fairy tale stories. Here are some of the places that I recommend to visit.
Vienna: The capital of Austria
St. Stephan Cathedral known as Stephan Plaztz in German.
Graz: Second largest city in Austria
Linz: Third largest city
Salzburg: home town of Mozart.
