Feldkirch

Feldkirch / Feldkirch

Feldkirch is a medieval city in the western Austrian state of Vorarlberg on the border with Switzerland and Liechtenstein. The rivalling Austrian and Ottoman empires waged frequent wars against each other over control of much Central Europe and the Balkans. During its peak, the Ottoman Empire threatened to conquer the Austrian capital of Vienna twice in 1529 and 1683. Despite the constant rivalry between the two, the city of Feldkirch never felt anything from these wars. During the World War 1, both joined the Central Powers as allies and their defeat lead to the abolition of both monarchies.
