VIENNA: CITY OF MY DREAMS

Vienna, Vienne, Wien…city of music, city of my dreams…

I’ve seen many places and I’ve visited many cities during my travels but Vienna has a really special place in my heart. I’ve been there four times already and I can’t seem to get enough.

I don’t know what it is… Actually, I do know what it is. The culture. The architecture. The history. To me Vienna is the perfect combination of old and new, but mostly of old. Whenever I’m there is like part of me goes back in time and has a taste of the past…when girls were wearing gowns and people were waltzing in ballrooms. I’ve always found those times fascinating and magical.

Anyway, back to reality. Vienna isn’t only history and old things. Vienna is also fun! I mean you can spend a whole day in one of the best amusement parks I’ve been to: Prater. I mean, it’s impossible not to find a ride that you’d like. And it has one amazing zoo which is pretty close to Princess Sissi’s home, Schönburnn Palace.

Vienna is and will probably remain one of my favourite cities in the world. Maybe because it’s one of the first cities I’ve ever visited or maybe it’s because of it’s culture, but if you’ve never visited it you should definitely give it a try! I’m pretty sure you won’t regret it!

  1. Vienna is a magical place shaped by its relationship with some of the most famous composers of the western world. Ludwig van Beethoven,Johannes Brahms,Anton Bruckner, Joseph Haydn, Franz Liszt, Gustav Mahler,
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Otto Nicolai, Antonio Salieri,Franz, Schubert, Max Steiner, Robert Stolz, Oscar Straus, Johann Strauss senior and junior, Richard Strauss,Antonio Vivaldi and many many others…, I do not know if these composers drew inspiration from Vienna’s architecture or the other way around, however, Vienna is a place where Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s words turn into reality. “Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music.”
