Vienna, Austria

Just like Budapest serving as some sort of door between the West and Eastern Europe (and Asia), the architecture of Vienna gives the impression of being the door from Hungary to Germany. This city gave a lot to the humanity through the history, like Fritz Lang, Sigmund Freud, and my favorite: Christoph Waltz. When looking at the facades of the buildings, one may see that they’re clearly a reconstruction of those who were there before the World War II, though they rescued most of the original details. On the other side of my experience in Budapest, I dedicated more time to register the city. Even with just 12 hours staying there, I could some of the great places that this city shows, like the huge extensions of public parks who use the vegetation as an element of big works of art, the palaces like the neoclassic Austrian Parliament, the Vienna Opera, the neogothic Rathaus and of course, the Kunsthistorisches Museum who inspired one of the main buildings of the final chapters of Half Life 2. Though the austrian people always try to separate themself from the german people (despites the obvious fact that they’re different countries), I can’t stop seeing that they are part of the same place. Same happens in the case of Argentina with Uruguay (sometimes, I can’t even differentiate one from each other when I see it here in Buenos Aires). You may see above the HD video of the Quick Overview of Vienna, the Rathaus, and the Haus des Meeres, a vertical zoo with some of the best views of the city. Beyond this text, some of the pictures I took there. Enjoy!
