Lovers of history, architecture, and music will have plenty of things to do in Vienna.
And those of you who enjoy delicious pastries, fine coffee, and strolling through museums will too!
That’s exactly what we found when we first arrived in Vienna. Mere moments after stepping foot in Austria’s capital it became exceedingly obvious why Vienna is called The Imperial City.

Much like the decadence of Klimt’s paintings, the city is decorated in broad strokes with lavish buildings leftover from bygone empires. Stately and grandiose, the architecture found in Vienna is a reflection of its past lives.
Austria once served as the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. And later on, it did the same for the massive Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
