Vienna is in eastern Austria and located near Austria's borders with Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. The whole downtown is designated as UNESCO Heritage Site. Apart from being regarded as "City of Music" (due to its huge musical legacy), Vienna is also famous as the hometown of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) - world's first psycho-analyst.
