History of Vienna

Vienna has a strong and rich historic roots going back to about 15 BC when first Romans arrived there. The city was probably a significant trading post prior to that for Celts. The place was named as Vindobonaafter the Celtic tribe Vinid. Soon the settlement bloomed as town and vineyards made their entry in the neighbouring areas by the3rd and 4th centuries. The town, in 881 was renamedas •Weniaê and the name was introduced in the legal documents. During the period, the town saw many changes of power until Babenburgs gained complete control. Later on, inherited by the Habsburgs, Vienna was made a permanent residence for first time in 1533 by Ferdinand I. The city went through several revolts, religious outbursts and suffered from plague during the Reformation and Counter-Reformation by the end of 17th century. However, it was during the beginning of 18th century that its golden age started adorned with extravagant architecture, elevation of classical music and many other reforms. After brief capture of Vienna twice by Napoleon, the actual growth of the city began and it successfully hosted the World Fair on international level in 1873. However, the freedom and growth was not long-lived as the city once again changed the hand of power and this time to Hitler who came marching on 15 March 1938 to the horror of 200, 000 Viennese. After suffering greatly under Allied bombing Vienna became independent in 1955 becoming a major player of new and old EU member nations.
