Vienna grew from a settlement of the Roman empire known as Vindobona to an important trading site and meeting place for rulers and diplomats. Geographically positioned in the center of Europe, Vienna is home to more than 40 intergovernmental organizations and one of just four office sites of the United Nations (UN). This speaks for Vienna being easily accessible by international travel. In Mercer’s Quality of Living survey, Vienna with its more than 1.9 million inhabitants was rated most liveable city every year from 2009 to 2019 for its affordable living, outstanding infrastructure, low crime rate and abundance of green spaces. As a cultural capital, the city has a long heritage of classical music, literature, and theater, which combined with its culinary and coffee culture offers many options to relax and socialize after a conference day.
