Union's Central European Trip

Just before the study starts, we finally managed to take the awaited trip to the urban centres in the neighbour northeastern lands. In 4 days we travelled through Graz and three capital cities, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. It was way too short for a decent explore, but the impressions were great, so I'll be definitely visiting these countries again in near future.






Let's start with some snapshots of A9 on the way to Graz:









Entering the city...

Austrian second largest city, with exemplary preserved and tidy city center. Reminded me of Maribor, but in bigger scale.
