Vienna makes an amazing destination for history lovers and tourists who admire a fine piece of art and also a lot about culture. Vienna's Ringstrasse is 3.3 miles long, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Long enough to provide space for numerous monumental buildings, which were built during the period of Historicism in the 1860s to 1890s. Today, the buildings that stand there – from the Vienna State Opera to the Museum of Fine Arts – are among the most important sights in the city of Vienna. Most of the buildings went up between 1869 and 1888 as part of a giant urban construction project. As a matter of fact, the initiative combined municipal and imperial works with new city residences for successful business owners and the nobility.
Tours of Ringstrasse are available from Vienna.
