long gone, but many reminders
of the city's
heyday remain, carefully preserved by the tradition-loving Viennese.
it comes to the arts, the glories of the past are particularly
thanks to the cultural legacy created by the many artistic geniuses
From the late 18th century on, Vienna's culture - particularly its musical forte - was famous throughout Europe. Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Strauss, Mahler, and Bruckner all lived in the city, producing music that is still played in concert halls all over the world. And at the tail end of the 19th century the city's artists and architects - Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, Josef Hoffmann, Otto Wagner, and Adolf Loos among them - brought about an artistic revolution that swept away the past and set the stage for the radically experimental art of the 20th century.
Nevertheless, Vienna is a Baroque city, and as visitors explore churches filled with statues of golden saints and pink-cheeked cherubs, wander through treasure-packed museums, or while away an afternoon in one of those multitudinous meccas of mocha (the inevitable caf*s), they begin to feel lapped in lashings of rich, delicious, whipped cream - the beloved Schlagobers that garnishes most Viennese pastries.
