Austria is a small country situated in the centre of Europe. Austria borders with Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Italy and Switzerland. The area of Austria is of 83,900 km2.

Relief. The Eastern Alps constitute about 60% of the territory (the highest peak is Gro?glockner (3,797 m) in the High Tauern). In the north the mountain chains turn into foothills that gradually lower approaching the Danube valley. In the northeast lies part of the Bohemian Forest massif, in the northwest the tectonic Vienna basin filled with sediment loads.

Mountains. The highest mountain range in Austria is the High Tauern with several peaks of more than 3,000 m, including Gro?glockner (3,798 m). The High Tauern is divided into three mountain groups – Venediger (the highest peak – Gro?venediger, 3,674 m), Grantespitze (Gro?er Muntanitz, 3,232 m), and Glockner (Gro?glockner, 3,798 m).

Rivers. The main rivers are the Danube and its tributaries the Inn, the Enns, the Drau and the Rhine river.
