The architecture throughout Austria’s cities is distinctively Baroque in style and is represented in buildings such as the Belvedere Palace in Vienna, exemplifying the extravagant style perfectly. The Austrian cuisine is also famous for dishes such as Wiener Schnitzel, Apfelstrudel and beverages such as Schnapps, of which there is 20 000 distilleries for across the country. Economically, Austria is well developed and as such there is a high standard of living and a high GDP per capita.

Skiing accounts for a huge amount of economic growth for the country, from tourism to the 1964 and 1976 Innsbruck Winter Olympics, the sport is an important part of Austria.
