The capital of Austria is also one of the nine federal states and, with around 1.9 million inhabitants, the most populous and, at 415 square kilometres, the largest city in the country. Until 1986, Wien was also the capital of Lower Austria, the largest province in the east, when it was replaced by St. Pölten. The Danube flows through the city from north to south-east over a length of more than 20 kilometres. With over 600 hectares of vineyards, Wien is the city with the largest wine production worldwide.
