Vienna Days in Krakow 3–5 April 2017
Vienna Days in Krakow took place on 3-5 April 2017. First events were already available from the last weekend of March.
Vienna is much more than the Hofburg Palace, the House of Habsburg, the waltz, the Prater, the Vienna State Opera or Sachertorte. Austria’s capital is a modern and innovative city which follows latest trends and sets out new criteria to further improve its citizens’ quality of life. The Mercer Quality of Living Survey already eight times identified Vienna as the top city providing its citizens with the highest quality of living in the world. This friendly and modern city offers exceptional opportunities for economic development and is more than willing to share its vast experience with others.
Vienna has a special status for Krakow. For many years both cities have been closely cooperating on several levels. The upcoming Vienna Days in Krakow are a result of that cooperation, offering an interesting conference devoted to issues such as air quality, energy management, organisation of mass events and economy.
