OLD WORLD VIENNA

While I’m traveling, I thought I would share some pics from my visit to Vienna, Austria.  A beautiful city, filled with ornate architecture, St. Stephen’s Cathedral dominates the city center.  Its spire is higher than anything else.  It would seem that the Viennese love all things ornate.

Belvedere Castle is currently home to a magnificent collection of art, including Klimt‘s “The Kiss” and Egon Schile’s “The Embrace”.

  1. Thanks Karen. Great pics. Bet that Klimt was amazing. I believe my friend saw it when it was visiting NYC. She was blown away. Hope you continue to have a lovely time.xoxo
