Third day in Vienna

We started with the grant tour of the palace, that allowed us to see all the 40 rooms. I enjoyed listening the story of every room, in a few ones I even took a moment and imagined how it would be to live there. In one of the rooms Mozart had his first concert at the age of six dedicated to the empress. Another room that impressed me was the ballroom. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA 3 4The headline to remember about this palace – it is one on the most representative Baroque buildings in Europe and the rooms are decorated in Rococo style. I actually felt like a witness to the Austro-Hungarian Empire┬áhistory while visiting Hofburg and Schonbrunn, a feeling that I want to experience again and again in every European capital city. After completing the grant tour we went to the souvenir shop, the impressive gardens, that I hope I will see in summer version also, one day. Of course, Schonbrunn was the host of another X-mas fair that we explored. We mostly admired the handmade products, that were quite expensive – around 17 euros a Christmas ball. As it was a cold and foggy day, we preferred to go back at the apartment for a nap and hit the city in the evening for a long walk downtown.
