Vienna is the capital and the largest city of Austria, and one of the nine states of Austria. Vienna is Austria's primary city, with a population of about 1.7 million and is by far the largest city in Austria, as well as its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 9th largest city by population in the European Union. Until the beginning of the 20th century it was the largest German-speaking city in the world. Vienna is host to many major international organisations, including the United Nations and OPEC. The city lies in the east of Austria and is close to the borders of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. These regions work together in a European Centrope border region. Along with nearby Bratislava, Vienna forms a metropolitan region with 3 million inhabitants. In 2001, the city centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Apart from being regarded as "The City of Music", because of its musical legacy, Vienna is also said to be "The City of Dreams" because it was home to the world's first psycho-analyst - Sigmund Freud. The city's roots lie in early Celtic and Roman settlements that transformed into a Medieval and Baroque city, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It is well known for playing an essential role as a leading European Music Centre, from the great age of Viennese Classicism through the early part of the 20th century. The Historic centre of Vienna is rich in architectural ensembles, including Baroque castles and gardens, as well as the late-
19th-century Ringstrasse lined with grand buildings, monuments and parks.
In a 2005 study of 127 world cities, the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked the city first (in a tie with Vancouver, Canada) for the world's most livable cities (in the 2012 survey of 140 cities Vienna was ranked number two, behind Melbourne).
The city was ranked first globally for its culture of innovation in 2007 and 2008, and fifth globally (out of 256 cities) in the 2011 Innovation Cities Index, which analysed 162 indicators in covering three areas: culture, infrastructure and markets. Vienna regularly hosts urban planning conferences and is often used as a case study by urban planners.
Each year since 2005, Vienna has been the world's number one destination for international congresses and conventions. Vienna attracts about five million tourists a year.

The DIA European Patient Fellowship programme, now in its ninth year, is a programme to promote the participation of representatives of patient organisations at the EuroMeeting.
DIA has enthusiastically embraced patients and patient advocates as stakeholders, which is the aim of the Patient Fellowship programme introduced eight years ago at the EuroMeeting. The presence of patient representatives at these meetings is only the first step. They have already started to follow up attending by actively participating as session speakers and chairs, and as members of our planning committees for these programmes. The DIA Board of Directors, and Regional Advisory Councils for Europe and North America, now include patient representatives.
