Before we leave Vienna behind here are a few photos of sights that I have not previously posted.
It would seem a good idea to make the first stop at the Opera House.
The building itself was erected between 1863 and 1869 as one of the great monuments of the new Ring Boulevard. The Royal - Imperial Court Opera Theater. as it was first called, was designed by the architects August Sicard von Sicardsburg and Eduard van der Null.
In the city centre there are many people dressed in costumes from Mozart's period trying to sell tickets for the night's concert. For some reason we were never approached. Could this be because we did not look like tourists or were we the wrong type of clientele?
Walking from the Opera House to St Stephen's there are over one hundred stars laid in the paved pedestrian thoroughfare of artists that have performed in the city.
Reaching St Stephen's Square and Cathedral, the former I have mentioned previously as this is where many of the street entertainers perform and is an area to relax and let the world go by.
Below are a few images of St Stephens Cathedral and more information can be found here.
Finally it would be a crime not to mention the Danube before we leave Vienna behind.
All three of us enjoyed our visit to Vienna and would certainly like to come back some time, especially as it is possible to get a hydrofoil down to Budapest. Now there's an idea.
