From the moment you arrive in Vienna, you know you are in an imperial city. The majestic cathedrals, lavish palaces, grand theaters, vast museums, as well as a mixture of central European influences all testify to the power and dominance of the Habsburg Empire, whose influence extended throughout Europe until the end of World War I. But Vienna is not only a city of rulers, but also of revolutionaries-in politics, culture, and the arts. Vienna is the home of Mozart, Klimt, and Freud. This city of magnificent contrasts will breathe life into your understanding of Western culture. It will also be an ideal base from which to explore Central Europe.
In addition to studying the German language and the cultural history of Central Europe in one of the most interesting cities in Europe, we will also be visiting Bratislava, Budapest, Zagreb, Ljubljana and Trieste. (Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy and Czech Republic.)
