Vienna, Austria

Austria

I fell in love with the Baroque streetscapes and imperial palaces of Vienna. This place has a lot of things to offer, from its coffee-house culture to channeling your artistic and musical inspiration.

A must-see is the Romanesque and Gothic St. Stephen Cathedral. Its iconic roof is ornately patterned by rich-coloured glazed roof tiles. The mosaic of the double-headed eagle symbolises the rule of the House of Habsburg. The interior of the cathedral contains eighteen altars, one of these is an intricately-sculpted interior pulpit shown below. The cathedral was constructed back in 1147 using porous limestone.

Cafe Zentral, the University of Vienna, Schonbrunn, Belvedere Museum, and the Spittelau Incineration Plant should also not to be missed!
