The Turks fought here and the Greeks prepared their fight for independence here. Traces of history can be found in every corner. 3. Architectural diversity All kinds of architectural styles can be found in Vienna’s old town from Gothic residential towers to medieval paving, back courtyards from the Renaissance, Baroque city palaces, whole rows of houses from the Rococo period, and magnificent Gründerzeit houses to elegant Art Nouveau houses. 4. Myths and legends Many stories and legends are associated with the rich and colorful history of the city. Time and time again people have tried to explain their existence with legends. Legends and reality sometimes differ from one another. Animals place an important role in this mythology, and they can be seen as ornaments on the facades and fountains in the city. 5.
