(Photos) Arrive and Revive: Austria

Austria’s tourism tagline, “Arrive and Revive”, is true to their promise. Vienna – with its numerous historical places, music halls and art spaces – makes a tourist truly busy. The list of places to see is just never ending. Salzburg, on its part, is quite serene, and for a person who is a fan of Mozart and/or someone who enjoyed watching the movie, The Sound of Music, this place is a must-place to go to. Going Southeast of Austria is Graz. It is a bucolic space soothing to the soul. It is no wonder that it forms part of the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage Sites. To sum, a visit to Austria is a saturation of art, music, history, and nature.
