But what characterises the traditional Viennese cuisine? First of all Vienna is one of the very few cities that can boast with its very own distinctive cuisine. Of course there are certain parallels with general Austrian cuisine, however traditional Viennese cuisine is seen as autonomous in Vienna's restaurants. The reasons can be found in the historic development of the Austrian capital: Vienna has been the European epicentre of power for centuries. People from the entire Habsburg Empire came to the regent's city to live and work. The melting pot of cultures also blended the different cooking styles into an exciting new cuisine - which is known today as traditional Viennese cuisine. Influences from Hungary - with 'Gulasch'; or Bohemia - with the many delicious pastries; and influences even from the Turkish besiegers of Vienna characterise the outstanding traditional Viennese cuisine.
