Welcome to Vienna.it city vortal Network
MUSEUMS AND MONUMENTS:

St.Stephen’s cathedral, religious symbol of Vienna, appears like a stately building in Gothic style.
The powerful north tower, which is dominated by the Steffi on its peak, characterizes the landscape with its 136 metres high, instead the south tower has the biggest bell of the city. It is also interesting to see the catacombs. Among all the religious buildings of the city it is advisable to visit the gothic St.Micheal‘s cathedral (Michaelkirche): inside the catacombs there are many mummified corps in painted coffins.

Very interesting also the capuchine’s church (kapuzinerkirche), which contains in its Baroque interior the ashes of many Habsburg members.
The most important civil buildings are those that are situated in the Ring, a six kilometres long Ring builded by Francesco Giuseppe, which surrounds the city and preserves the main symbols of the glorious past of this city.
Not only the Hofburg is beautiful to see with its imperial apartments and the silverware museum which was in the past the sumptuous imperial residence and now has become the presidential one but also the great city hall (Rathaus), a new gotic building with a hundred meters high tower, and the parliament which is inspired to a classic greek architecture and preceeded by a corinthian colonnade.The Staatsoper, which is one of the most important Renaissance theatre in the world, holds a prestigious position in the monumental structure of the city because it was the first building completed in the Ring, rebuilded after the ruins of second world war. Even if the city has a great cultural property, it isn’t to forget the remarkable presence of museums, which offers to the tourists works of world wide renown.
