The Vienna Museum Quarter is one of the largest cultural sites in the world. There are many museums, cafes, restaurants, shops and different art institutions in the area within the boundaries of the historical center of Vienna. In the area established on an area of 640,000 square meters, a post-modern atmosphere has been created with examples of modern architecture as well as baroque-style buildings. The modern furniture called Enzi, which is in the open air as well as the museums, is also very interesting.
