For more than two centuries, Vienna has been the
uncontested ball capital of the world. Each year the city hosts
around 450 ball events, which are a unique blend of age-old

bring the traditional Viennese Ball to Bangkok.
Austrian Embassy will organize a Vienna Ball Bangkok on 8 May 2015

couples from Vienna, followed by performances of ballet and opera
performances from renowned Austrian artists. The Bangkok Symphonic
Orchestra under the guidance of a noted Austrian conductor will

friends from Thailand closer to the waltz and ballroom dancing. I

would like to express my kind thanks to all of our sponsors and
