Villach is the seventh-largest city in Austria and the second largest in the federal state of Carinthia and being considered as the BUTTERFLY CAPITAL OF AUSTRIA. It is a small city filled with nice and very helpful people. This city is filled with light even if the sky is overcast. Eating out is a delight because the restaurants really serve good food. The Italian influence is very much present in the shops; food, bags, shoes and fashion. Walking around the City of Villach is very delightful. The Drava/Drau river makes the city more picturesque
A short drive away from the city centre is just like stepping into a movie. I always call this city as "heaven". The mountains with their high peaks are so majestic. Glistening lakes and the gouged valleys would certainly make you pinch yourself to make sure that you are not just dreaming. The mountain lakes would make you sit down and wether you like it or not, calm would start to linger around you and in you. Yes, that is my Villach as I l know it. My friends Edmund and Waltraud Huditz live here and this reason tops it all. They are the very reason why Villach won my heart.
