A series of seven films about aspects of their past made by seven European countries.
In 1683 the Turks were defeated outside the gates of Vienna and the confidence that came from this great victory ushered in an age of unparalleled splendour in Austrian history.
Over the next 50 years architects like Lukas von Hildebrandt and Fischer von Erlach built great churches, palaces and monasteries that have no equal in Europe for the grandeur of their design or the richness of their decoration. This film, made by Austrian Television, shows how all the arts came together at this time to celebrate the Age of Baroque.
