View from the Wiener Riesenrad (Viennese giant Ferris wheel) at the Prater in Vienna, Austria.
You clearly can see the Danube Tower (Donauturm), with on the right the Vienna International Centre (VIC) or UNO City
and the St. Francis of Assisi Church (Kirche zum heiligen Franz von Assisi).

The Vienna Donauturm (Danube Tower), opened in April 1964, is the tallest structure in Austria, at 252 metres (827 ft), and among the 75 tallest towers in the world. The tower is located near the north bank of the Danube River in the district of Donaustadt. The Donauturm was constructed during 1962–1964, as designed by Austrian architect Hannes Lintl, in preparation for the Viennese International Horticultural Show 1964.
Since then, it has become a part of the Viennese skyline and has become a popular lookout point and a tourist attraction.

The Vienna International Centre (VIC) is the campus and building complex hosting the United Nations Office at Vienna (UNOV).
As colloquially also known as UNO City, the VIC is only the one part of it. The other one is the Austria Center Vienna (ACV).
The VIC, designed by Austrian architect Johann Staber, was built between 1973 and 1979 just north of the river Danube.

St. Francis of Assisi Church (Kirche zum heiligen Franz von Assisi), also known as the Kaiser Jubilee Church (Kaiserjubiläumskirche) and
the Mexico Church (Mexikokirche), is a Basilica-style Catholic church in Vienna, Austria. Built between 1898 and 1910, it was consecrated in 1913.
It is located on the Mexikoplatz in Vienna's Second District, Leopoldstadt, and is administered by the Order of the Holy Trinity.
