The city located on the Danube River is the capital city of Austria and one of the nine states of Austria. Founded around 500 BC, Vienna was originally a Celtic settlement. Vienna flourished during the reign of the Habsburg Dynasty when it became the capital of the Holy Roman Empire and an important religious, scientific and cultural centre. The "golden age" of Vienna is dates back to the 18th century and the early 19th century (e.g. in the years 1814-1815 it was the seat of the famous Congress of Vienna); however, also today Vienna is one of the most famous and strategically important places in Central Europe. The city is a significant centre of European culture, arts and education. The Viennese architecture, representing the most important styles, became an inspiration for the majority of cities of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (including Krakow). Founded in 1365, the University of Vienna is the oldest educational institution in the German-speaking area of Europe. Vienna has many museums, theatres and art galleries; it is also the seat of the Vienna International Centre which hosts important international organisations, including the United Nations.
