Trams in Vienna are a vital part of the public transport system in Vienna, capital city of Austria. In operation since 1865, the network reached its greatest extent during the interwar period (1918–1939). Today, it is the fifth largest tram network in the world, at about 176.9 kilometres (109.9 mi) in total length and 1,071 stations.
The Ring Road (is a circular, more properly called grand boulevard ring road surrounding the oldest historical city centre Innere Stadt district of Vienna, Austria and is one of its main sights. It is located on the site of the former medieval city fortifications and the open military plain (glacis) that lay before them. Constructed in the mid-19th century after the dismantling of the city walls, its architecture is typical of the eclectic, historicist style called Ringstraßenstil (“ring road style”) of the 1860s to 1890s, a collection of imposingly grand neo-Gothic, neo-Renaissance, neo-Classical and neo-Baroque.
Known for its unique architectural beauty and history, it has also been called the “Lord of the ring boulevards”, and is inscribed by UNESCO as part of Vienna’s World Heritage Site.
