Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second smallest continent in terms of area and third largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.

Vienna is the capital of Austria and one of the nine states of Austria. It is Austria's primate city, with a population of about 1.6 million. The total area of this region is 414.90 square kilometers. Vienna is by far the largest city in Austria as well as its cultural, economic and political centre. Art and culture have a long tradition in Vienna, in the areas of theatre, opera, classical music and fine arts. The Akademietheater is considered one of the best theatres in the German speaking world. There is also a multitude of smaller theatres, often equal in quality to their larger counterparts. They are devoted to less mainstream forms of performing arts such as modern, experimental plays or cabaret.
