A Beautiful Town

Linz is a gem of a town about 190 KM from Vienna.It is the third most important town in Austria and is located in Upper Austria.It is well connected by rail and road to the major cities in Austria.The river Danube flows through the city and offers dramatic views of this historic city.
Linz has been selected as the cultural capital of Europe for the year 2009.
Since relatively very few tourists visit this city it is quiet, peaceful and less commercial as compared to Vienna.
This tiny gem is a must see for anyone who likes to visit a small,lively and beautiful European city.
