Imagine yourself sitting in a little coffee-house sipping a cup of fancy cappuccino and when you look out of the window, all you see is the beautiful Baroque style architecture. That is how I felt during my trip to Vienna. This federal capital of Austria is a must visit destination if you love historical art, music and architecture.
The royal splendor of Vienna is a heritage of the powerful Hapsburg monarchy. The beautiful Baroque style architecture left me spell bound while I was coming around the streets of Vienna. The Hofburg Palace, which includes the Burgkapelle (Imperial Chapel) and the Spanish Riding School are a few of the great experiences of Vienna. The baroque Schools Belvedere is another enormous palace. Sarah, a friend who runs http://www.roofing518.com/ has a passion for beautiful palaces throughout Europe and said this is a beautiful place worth visiting with its rich history and amazing views.
Vienna is a place filled with masterpieces and one cannot ignore the darling museums of the city. The Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, has the glorious art collection and is adorned with priceless works also containing one of the world’s richest coin collections. The Leopold Museum showcasing the 19th and 20th century Austrian art and the works of avant – garde at the contemporary MUMOK are the other two places that shouldn’t be missed. A fun fact – these two places were the former imperial stables that were converted into museums.
Vienna has a musical heritage is known as the City of Music. I experienced many performances in the city which filled my soul. The interactive exhibits at the fascinating Haus Der Musik museum are another beautiful experience.
Drink and dine
Known for its coffee-house culture, Vienna has ’n’ number of places to dine. You can find spectacular cakes and fine wines around the city. Since the city is glorious already, the posh dining restaurants are another deal maker.
You can find many budget hotels and guest houses in the city and enjoy the beauty of its street escape. Vienna, all-in-all, was a wonderful experience for me.
