Travel Study


Exploring Vienna + Budapest:

May 11 – 24, 2022

Join professors and students from Western Carolina on a travel-study adventure to
two of the world’s most storied capitals – Vienna and Budapest.

We’ll spend approximately half our time immersed in each rich and heady hub – including time in the surrounding countryside, whose traditions made their ways into the capitals. Explore the Habsburg power structure that survived until the end of World War I – barely over 100 years ago, and the arts scene that has found patrons among the Royals, the industrial elite, and even the Communist state. It’s about design,
spanning centuries; architecture – from the baroque, to Mediterranean and Turkish,
to avant-garde, to the empire’s unique take on Art Nouveau; to the culture of these two cities today.
