This is a fantastic skyscraper! I love it.

Vienna looks beautiful too. I didn't realise it was so large.

I'm going skiing in Austria in a few weeks but I'm flying in to Innsbruck. I'll definitely visit Vienna one day though.

I agree! But at least no historic buildings were destroyed to build this one... like it happened in NYC with the drake!! It was such an important and gorgeous old building... what a shame

It's the Old Danube - not the Kaiserwasser...

I agree

@tim1807 I think it's trying to say that too many people mistake Austria and Australia which seems to be the case quite a lot

No other explanation needed! It's kinda embarrassing if you ask me. After all, both countries have nothing in common whatsoever.
When I was in New York almost exactly 1 year ago, one guy on the street asked me where I was from. I said Austria. He subsequently asked me if I love kangaroos. I was totally disappointed. Austria has a very rich history and should be known.

Anyways, b2t.

Unfortunately, it happens a lot! Austria is so small and unknown...

I happens but a main reason is that Australia is one of the English speaking countries and therefore a lot better known country than Austria in the US at least. Many of those who mistake Austria for Australia actually misunderstood the name. Some really don't know Austria however. Most of those have a vague idea however if you tell them: "where Arnie came from".
