Vienna (German: Wien [viːn]; Slovenian: Dunaj, Romanian: Viena, Hungarian: Bécs, Czech: Vídeň, Slovak: Viedeň, Romany Vidnya; Croatian and Serbian: Beč) is the capital of Austria, and also one of the nine States of Austria. With a population of about 1.6 million (2.2 million within the metro area), Vienna is the largest city in Austria as well as its cultural economic and political center. Vienna is one of Europe's finest cities and the long and rich history give her a prominent place in Western Civilization and World Culture.

Situated both sides of the River Danube, and only 60 kilometers off Austria's Eastern border, Vienna lies on the South East corner of Central Europe and in close reach to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.

Vienna is seat to a number of United Nations offices and various international institutions and companies, including the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, Budapest, Hungary

January 31st, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Budapest Ferihegy International Airport (Hungarian: Ferihegyi Repülőtér or simply Ferihegy) (located at 47°26′12.96″N, 19°15′20.13″E) is the only airport serving the capital city of Budapest, and the largest among the country's four international airports. The airport offers a wide range of international connections primarily within Europe, but also to Asia, the Middle East, and North America. The airport is located 10 miles (16km) south east of Budapest, accessible by the major transport artery of Üllői út. At the end of 2005 expressway M0 that connects all major roads and expressways around the city will reach the airport providing faster link to other towns.

Ferihegy is large enough to accept the Boeing 747 and Antonov An-124. Airbus A380 capability is not yet known. Most of the traffic comprises Airbus-, Boeing 737-, and Douglas DC-9-derived twinjets, flying to and from European cities, and several overseas Boeing 767s. A few ex-Soviet bloc airlines still fly Tupolev and Ilyushin jetliners to Ferihegy.

Planes landing from the north (this depends on the wind conditions) will fly low over the Kőbánya district, the location of the largest cemetery in Europe. Weather seldom diverts aircraft. When this does happen, planes usually land at Bratislava or Vienna.

Nepstadion, (Stadium Puskas Ferenc), Budapest, Hungary

January 31st, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Stadium Puskás Ferenc (Hungarian: Puskás Ferenc-stadion) is a multi-use stadium in Budapest, Hungary. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The all-seater stadium officially holds 68,976 but due to the appalling condition of the upper stands, no more than 44,000 are allowed in.

It was built between 1948 and 1953 using many volunteers and even the army. Less than one year later, on May 23, 1954 England suffered its worst ever defeat here.

The stadium is named after Ferenc Puskás, Hungary's greatest ever footballer, who was the star player of the national team during its glory years of the late 1940s and early 1950s. The stadium was renamed in his honour in 2001 from Népstadion ("People's Stadium").

Keleti palyaudvar (Eastern Railway Station), Budapest, Hungary

January 31st, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Keleti pályaudvar or Eastern Railway Station is the largest railway station in Budapest. It can be found in the 8th district (Józsefváros), on Baross Square.

The building was constructed in eclectic style between 1881 and 1884 and was one of the modernest railway stations of Europe in that time. It was planned by Gyula Rochlitz and János Feketeházy. The station's length is 93 m, the platform length is 80 m, underground depth is 14 m.

Keleti pályaudvar is also a station of the M2 (East-West) line of the Budapest Metro and from about 2009 on, it will be a station of the M4 line, too.

It is also planned that fast train service would connect this railway station with the Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, maybe from 2007 on. The fact that the majority of Intercity services (36 out of 53) arrive at this railway station makes this decision more probable.
