Join us for the Viennese Ball in Bucharest
Traditionally, Austria's ball season starts on November 11th at 11:11 and ends 40 days before Easter, giving Vienna a fairytale like atmosphere – the elegant, spectacular, well-mannered capital of the world.
The oldest and best known events of this type are: the famous Opernball, the Opera Ball, taking place at the Staatsoper, the Kaiserball (Imperial Ball) on the 31st December at the gorgeous Hofburg Imperial Palace, the Ball der Wiener Philharmoniker (Ball of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra), a classy event in the building of the Musikverein, the Gala der Wiener Wirtschaft (Gala of the Viennese Industry) at the Hofburg Imperial Palace, and the Juristenball (Lawyers' Ball), one of the more upper-class balls, also in the Hofburg.
However it has also become customary that classical Viennese Balls are regularly organized outside of Austria, as for instance in New York, Washington, Moscow, London, Melbourne and not to forget the famous annual Viennese Ball in Bucharest.
This exclusive event - "Vienna Ball in Bucharest" will take place at the prestigious Parliament Palace, located at Libertăţii Bvd., district.5, the largest building in Europe.
