Vienna is one of the best city in Europe. Very clean, easy to move around, full of history and best of the classic music.

Very nice Russian orthodox church in the diplomatic quarter of Vienna, next to Russian Embassy and close to Rennweg Station and Imperial Riding school hotel. Also not far from Belvedere Palace and gardens, so if you are there, worth the detour.
