Why choose Austria?

Austria is in a unique position, located between the culturally vibrant east Europe and the technologically advanced west Europe.

There is a bit of everything, even though the country is not necessarily the largest or the wealthiest. Gorgeous skiing resorts perched high on the mountains, and verdant forests resting just below. Austrian people are genuine and relaxed, and their food ranked some of the best. This is the crossroads of Europe, and you surely will enjoy the dynamic differences it has to offer.
