维也纳就像一位受过良好教育的优雅又时髦的中年女士,着青春派风格的衣饰,坐在中央咖啡馆(Cafe Central),喝着本土特色的Melange,听着斯特劳斯欢快的《蓝色多瑙河》,用Augarten的小叉子切下一块苹果馅饼(Apple Strudel)递给她的聊友 - 访客,其不时因主人维也纳式的幽默而崩出欢快的咯咯声,也忍不住一会儿就瞄一眼桌上的行程表:观看西班牙骑术学校的Lipizzaner "白马王子"们跳舞 + 维也纳童声合唱团表演 + 国家歌剧院演出《唐璜》; 参观原汁原味巴洛克宫殿贝尔维第宫(Belvedere Palace),欣赏古斯塔夫 克林姆特(Gustav Klimt)的“吻”,1955年签署国家条约的大理石厅和“Canaletto-Blick”俯瞰城市景观; 游览美泉宫(皇家夏宫),霍夫堡(皇家冬宫)以及茜茜公主博物馆; 聆听史蒂芬大教堂的一场弥撒; 去维也纳森林的山头鸟瞰全城,然后去附近的贝多芬故居葡萄酒庄听着乡土民乐用特色餐……

European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) As you may have heard in the news, beginning Jan. 1, 2021, American travelers visiting European countries in the Schengen Area will have to register through a system called the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS). We wanted to clear up what may be some confusion on the issue by stating what we know about the program. This electronic traveler registration is not a visa as has erroneously been reported. Instead, it has chosen to implement this traveler pre-screening program, similar to the ESTA Program currently in place for inbound travel to the United States. The Commission states that the main goal of ETIAS visa waivers for Europe is to "identify possible threats or risks associated with visitors traveling to any of the Schengen Area countries".
