Vienna, Austria

16 Sep

D:"Dear, would you like to visit Vienna now that we are in Budapest, it's not so far?"
M:(overwhelmed with happiness) Yes! Of course darling." (claps hands and smiles)

Vienna was the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Apart from being regarded as the City of Music because of its musical legacy, Mozart, Haydn, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms, Gustav Mahler and Arnold Schoenberg have worked there. Vienna is also said to be "The City of Dreams" because it was home to the world's first psycho-analyst, Sigmund Freud.

There are a few important places you don't want to miss in Vienna: Hofburg Palace, Schönbrunn Palace, Belvedere Palace, St. Stephen's Cathedral, Karlskirche.

For over 600 years the Hofburg was the residence of the Austrian sovereigns. Apart from its function as the seat of government and administrative center, the Hofburg was also the winter residence of the imperial family. From the 18th century onwards the court spent the summer at Schönbrunn Palace.

We bought the Sisi ticket, with which we could visit Hofburg Palace, Sisi Museum, Silver Collection, Imperial apartments, The Museum of imperial furniture and Schönbrunn Palace. At Schönbrunn we took the Grand Tour which includes the eighteenth-century rooms from the time of Maria Theresa.

Schönbrunn and its Baroque park were built and remodeled during the reign of Empress Maria Theresa.
The attractions in the park include the Labyrinth, The Crown Prince Garden, Botanic Garden, Palm House, Tiergarten Schönbrunn- which is the oldest zoo in the world, and many many more 🙂
