James Bond stayed at Palais Schwarzenberg, Austria. At the scene when Bond and Kara Milovy arrived by horse and carriage and Vienna court dancing was held, the palace in the background is Schönbrunn Palace. The Habsburgs resided here the better part of the year in summer. Emperor Franz Joseph, who later married the enchanting Sisi and reigned from 1848 to 1916, was born here in 1830. The monarch spent his last years entirely in the palace. At the 20th session of the World Heritage Committee held in December 1996 Schönbrunn Palace was put on the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites.
Today it is the most visited tourist attraction in Austria. Around 5 million people come every year to see palace, gardens, zoo and other attractions of Schönbrunn.
