Vienna, Austria 2012

Wien, Österreich




This summer I went to Vienna, Austria, to visit a city I'd never been to before.

Vienna is one of Europe's most classical cities, in both culture and architecture, and I saved some of the city pics for this fourm.
(© All photos are my own. I'm not a big photo enthusiast, so i don't have the best equipment, nor technique)

3. Typical street in Inner Stadt, with St. Stephen's Cathedral (Stephansdom) behind.

Thanks. Yes, the city is really pretty, clean and well organized as some say. Was like walking in a museum. Should send our local politicians down there to be inspired :)
