Vienna ~ Its all in the building
Early in the year, I took a trip to Brno in the Czech Republic and somehow found myself exploring Vienna as well. The plan was to spend 4 days in Brno but I managed to explore the entire city it in one day. I decided to use the remainder 3 days wisely by exploring neighbouring cities. Vienna is a city which is really close to Brno, takes under 2 hours on the bus to reach.
If you’re anything like me and get really itchy feet you too would have taken the opportunity to visit Vienna. One thing that stood out for me about Vienna was the buildings, it’s really about the buildings. The architecture had me gripped from the word go and I couldn’t stop admiring the place.
Must See buildings in Vienna
The first building that captured my attention when I got to Vienna was near the Naschmarkt market. I often look back on my pictures that I took in Vienna and this is one of them. Of venturing into Naschmarkt and picking up some delicious treats, I then ventured to Resselpark. Resselpark was not your typical park but I loved it, the cathedral took all the glory and who can blame it.
The Soviet War Memorial definitely reduced me to tears when I read through the pillars and observed the buildings surrounding. It was a nice place to visit, everything so peaceful, beautiful and yet so busy. From the warm memorial, I walked back to Resselpark where I grabbed a train to Schonbrunn Palace. Schonbrunn Palace is a must visit place for anyone visiting Vienna. Make sure to walk all the way to the back of the palace and get up to to get the best view in the house.
Museums Quarter is another amazing place I visited which took my breath away. I spent so much time drooling over the buildings and not snapping any pictures. I did not manage to go inside the Museums Quarter nor the Leopold Museum-Privatstiftung but I still wouldn’t change a thing. The outside was just as beautiful and captivating as any museum I am sure.
Have you ever visited a place just for its architectural beauty? Vienna for me was all in the buildings.
