Vienna, Austria [ENA] On the 30th of November the doors of the imperial palace Hofburg opened for the 13th Moscow ball. The Moscow ball, which takes place every year in Vienna starting from 2007, is organized in parallel with the Viennese ball, which takes place in Moscow starting from 2003. These balls are not only a prove of connections between two cities but they are also a wonderful opportunity to promote dancing culture.

According to the Viennese mayor Dr. Ludwig, these balls are also an opportunity to promote cultural background of both countries. According to the mayor of Moscow, Dr. Sobyanin, the Moscow and the Viennese balls are perfect opportunities to create new connections, friendships and business opportunities.
