Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria, and one of the nine states of Austria
. Vienna is Austria's primary city, with a population of about 1.8 million, and its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 6th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union.
Until the beginning of the 20th century it was the largest German-speaking city in the world, and before the splitting of the Austro-Hungarian Empire
in World War I the city had 2 million inhabitants. Today it has the second most number of German speakers after Berlin. Vienna is host to many major international organizations, including the United Nations and OPEC.
The city lies in the east of Austria and is close to the borders of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. These regions work together in a European Centrope border region. Along with nearby Bratislava, Vienna forms a metropolitan region with three million inhabitants. In 2001, the city centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Apart from being regarded as the City of Music because of its musical legacy, Vienna is also said to be "The City of Dreams" because it was home to the world′s first psycho-analyst, Sigmund Freud. The city′s roots lie in early Celtic and Roman settlements that transformed into a Medieval and Baroque city, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
