Cities of Austria: Wiener Neustadt

50 km south of Vienna lies an industrial city Wiener Neustadt (Wiener Neustadt), strongly affected by the bombing of the Second World War (almost 88% of his buildings were destroyed). However, the ancient walls erected by Babenberg in 1194, when he founded the fortress at the Hungarian border, survived and serve as a bright reminder of the city of the period of his heyday (in the XV century he was the main residence of Habsburgs).


Former residence Friedrich III – Theresianische MilitaraKademie (XIII-XVIII centuries.) – turned into a prestigious military academy, known to the extensive meeting of various historical regalia (it is possible to visit within organized tours). And surprisingly compact "Nizhny city" Around spacious square Hauptplatz, Town Hall and lying just north Romanesque Cathedral Restored with special care.
