After spending a few days in Czech Republic, we moved to Vienna and boy was Vienna awe inspiring.
Old world opulence mixed with modern sensibilities, that’s how I would describe this city. While Prague was dreamy like a fairy tale, Vienna will show you how the royals lived back in the day. Endless gardens, magnificent palaces and Gothic style cathedrals.
All over the city, you see these buildings with gargoyles guarding them, in here the devil was in the details. As I was researching for this trip, I knew I wanted to learn and be immersed in the past and Vienna did not disappoint.
This palace is the top tourist attraction in the city for good reason. This summer baroque style palace is over 300 years old, and to it is expansive is an understatement.
- Travel Tip: Vienna is a rather big city and landmarks are far apart from each other, to save time, purchase a hop-on, hop-off bus, there are a several options to chose from depending on your budget.
- Travel Tip: Don’t lose your ticket after buying it, they don’t replace it!
Over the years, I have come to appreciate architecture , especially places of worship, whether Catholic or otherwise. If you are like me, the Stephansdom Cathedral is a place to see when in the city.
In the middle of all the old-world beauty, the Museum Quartier lies, a massive complex dedicated to modern art and lifestyle. The place has a lot of courtyards for you to chill and appreciate some of the exhibitions both indoor and outdoor. A must see for any art buff and Instagram addict!
For something out of the ordinary, look for the Aqua Terra Zoo in the middle of the city. It’s actually an aquarium that has a bar and cafe at the top, the place gives you a great view of the city!
Must see places while you are in Vienna
We didn’t have much time in Vienna, but I can say there allot more to see and visit here, it is a big city full of aristocratic buildings and they have a long street full of high street and luxury shops.
