We had a brief tour of Vienna this morning, with the rest of the day free to wander at our leisure. There is so much impressive architecture in Vienna that I’m not even going to try to cover it. Instead, I’ll give you a single teaser.
And of course, Vienna was once a Roman fort, so I have to include a small picture of that.
We already saw one St. Stephen’s cathedral this week, but I like this picture because of the way it shows such a wide range of architectures existing side by side.
The roof was destroyed in the war, but the restoration is true to the original. I like the pattern detail.
It had been a while since breakfast, and there wasn’t a lineup, so we couldn’t resist.
I spent the rest of the afternoon in the Natural History Museum, where I barely scratched the surface. The exhibit that I found most fascinating was their very impressive meteorite collection. They had hundreds, but here you can see some of the larger ones – over 1,000 KG.
