Vienna (in German: Wien) is the capital of Austria. It is the country's largest city with a population of about 2.3 million, and its economical, political and cultural centre. It is located in the east of Austria, on the Danube river, close to the Austrian-Slovakian border. Although surrounded by the federal state of Lower Austria (Niederösterreich), Vienna constitutes a separate federal state.
