VIENNA, TAKE TWO

Post available in English and Romanian
Atractia principala din Viena, palatul Schonbrunn, a fost prima destinatie de pe lista noastra. Chiar daca vara gradinile transforma aceasta locatie intru-un paradis, privelistea este spectaculoasa si pe timp de iarna. Faimosul galben de Schonbrunn iti da impresia ca un soare cald de vara isi revarsa razele pe fatada caldirii. Tot aici puteti vizita cea mai veche gradina zoologica din lume. Nu am avut timp sa vizitam toate muzeele, asa ca am facut o selectie: Albertina si muzeul Leopold nu ne-au dezamagit. Daca vreti sa shimbati registrul, sa treceti si pe la Muzeul de istorie naturala. Alte optiuni sunt: resedinta lui Mozart, celebra cladire a primariei sau parlamentul. Sa nu ratati nici Catedrala Sfantul Stefan, e usor de gasit si locatia e accesibila, chiar in centrul orasului. Cam asa ar trebui sa arate un tur rapid, din punctul meu de vedere. Vienna‘s main attraction, the Schonbrunn Palace was the first destination on our list. In the summer, the gardens transform the surroundings in a paradise, but the view was spectacular even during the winter. The famous “Schonbrunn yellow” made it seem like there’s no winter at all, just a warm spring. Also, here at Schonbrunn, you can visit the world‘s oldest public zoo.We never got to visit all the museums.  We had time to see Albertina, – the museum of classical graphic arts, and what a good choice that was! We remained captured by the arts and proceeded to Leopold Museum, for a round of modern art. For a change of theme, do not miss the Museum of natural history. It’’s worth visiting! We also toured Mozart’’s residence, took a walk by the Rathaus (city hall), and walked by the Austrian Parliament Building. While in Vienna, don’’t miss St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the gothic church that can be found in the center of the town. That concluded out fast – tour of the city.
