The city of music, Vienna!

17 Comments

The Austrian capital Vienna also known as the city of music is one of the few places where ancient and modern architecture blend together. This city is home to some of the world’s most distinct and impressive cathedrals, palaces and monuments which is worth visiting at least once in life time. My trip to this historical city was just for a day and I was absolutely lured by its history to extend my stay. Fortunately the weather was warm and sunny which made the trip even more enjoyable.

Our journey in the city started with the visit to the State Opera House which is famous for its performances of theater, opera, and music. It is a very lively neighborhood to stroll by with innumerable eateries and souvenir shops. Later, we headed towards the Museum Quartier which is one of the largest cultural center of the city. We walked through the Hofburg palace, Austrian Parliament, Museum of Natural History capturing memories and admiring the beautiful architecture of all these monuments with rich cultural and historical significance.

Our last stop was the royal Schonbrunn Palace which is one of the remarkable cultural monuments in Vienna where the historical rulers resided during the summer. The garden and the ornate decor of the palace is such a quaint view. The handmade honey candles, fresh flower bath oils and hanging decor shops lit up the palace and it was so amazing to walk past the artists and watch them hand carve their traditional handicrafts. It was a very enjoyable atmosphere while the other curious tourists just like me gathered by the artists with intriguing questions.

Vienna is a huge city with just so much to explore. I wish I had a few more days to explore and enjoy the other cities of Austria such as Innsbruck and Salzburg. I hope I am lucky to go back and visit these places too.

  3. All the statues definitely reminds me of Vienna, they seemed to be everywhere. I also only had a couple of afternoons to stroll around when I visited (was a work trip), but I got a really good impression. And I had the best pork knuckle I’ve ever had at the Schweizerhaus in Vienna:)

  6. Seeing Vienna with such sunny weather is beautiful ! I’ve only been there during winter (end of November). The handicraft market sounds really interesting, it’s a bit the same concept as a xmas market, I love it !

  7. If I were actually there, I would have a difficult time not crossing over to Hungary and spending my time there, but I still enjoyed your pictures of Vienna very much!
