IIC 2012 Congress - The Decorative: Conservation and the Applied Arts

A capital of cultural heritage awaits you…
Vienna lies at the heart of Europe on the mighty River Danube at the cross-roads of millennia of cultural traditions and of trade between East and West. Well known for its grand Baroque buildings and the later Jugendstil and Secession architecture, Vienna displays a wide and rich range of architectural styles and applied artistry, of paintings, drawings, metalwork, photography, sculpture and decorative artifacts in a variety of workshops and ateliers, galleries and museums. The home of Haydn, Mozart, Schubert and Schönberg and the Strauss family, the city is also the heart of a more intangible heritage of music, dance and theatre. Vienna is situated near other important European cultural centres – Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, Brno, this proximity reflecting Vienna’s importance as a centre of Europe’s cultural network. The beautiful Danube Valley, with its vineyards and monasteries, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
