Vienna 10
Vienna has a special Austrian vibe that is found in other Austrian cities but being the capital the center is packed with interesting buildings reflecting the life and history of the city.The flair for music and art lovers makes it look like a whole stage. Besides there are many green open spaces some of them with beer gardens which give visitors a relaxing feeling especially in Summer evenings. Locals compliment the city because they are helpful and do things in a smart way. Well no doubt, keep it up.

Bad Gastein 9
SKIING IN EUROPE AT ITS BEST-ALL LEVELS OF SKIING IS POSSIBLE HERE!! All the slopes are next to the town-you walk to the ski slopes. Nearby slopes are excellent. You can ski from one town to the next town. We stayed at a self catering unit and the grocer store provided everything. When the snow is minimal in the other ski resorts in Europe, then Bad Gastein has surely got snow. I can recommend Bad Gastein as a top Ski resort-5 star.
