The Federal Republic of Austria in Central Europe with its capital Vienna covers 83,883 km² and is divided into nine federal states. The neighbouring countries are Germany and the Czech Republic to the north, Slovakia and Hungary to the east, Slovenia and Italy to the south and Switzerland and Liechtenstein to the west. More than 70% of the region is mountainous. Viticulture is concentrated in the east of the country, where all the wine-growing regions defined as DAC are located. One speciality is Vienna, the only capital city in the world where quality viticulture is practised on a large scale.
