Austria-Hungary
By Sharon Fabian

Austria

 
2     Austria is a small country in central Europe. It is a mountainous country known for its beautiful Alpine scenery and outdoor sports. Its capital, Vienna, is a historic city with beautiful old buildings and sidewalk cafes.
 
3     Today, Austria is a modern country. Many of its citizens live in Vienna and its other cities. German is the official language there. Children in Austria all go to school, and nearly everyone enjoys some outdoor sports. Ice skating, skiing, sledding on a toboggan or bobsled, and ice hockey are all popular.
 
4     Austria is a major cultural center in Europe. It is known for art, architecture, and good food, but especially for music. One Austrian, Joseph Haydn, wrote symphonies that are enjoyed all over the world. Franz Schubert, also from Austria, wrote the beautiful "Ave Maria." Another Austrian, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, is maybe the most famous classical musician of them all.
 
5     By the time of the Middle Ages, Austria had become a huge empire. Ruled for generations by the Hapsburg family, Austria grew and became more and more powerful. As it grew, it took over lands on all sides. One area that it took over was Hungary, a small country on its eastern border.
