Vienna (in German Wien) is the capital of Austria, and is also one of its nine states. With a population of about 2 million, it is by far the largest city of the country, as well as its cultural, economic and political center. Vienna lies in the very east of Austria and is close to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. An Economist Intelligence Unit study of 127 world cities ranked it first equal with Vancouver for the quality of life. Vienna is composed of 23 districts (Bezirke). The two numbers in the middle of the postal code represent the district number (1120 for the 12th district). Also in the streets you will always find the district number, so you can find locations very easily.
