The first you walk there, especially if it's in the evening, you are simply astonished by the number of palaces, statutes, sculptures, gardens and what have you. I find it hard to remember another city with similar number of so many impressively decorated buildings on such a big, yet concentrated area. It's simply amazing and seems to overwhelm you. Especially since in these days Austria does not seem to be such a world center. But then when you stretch your memory (or google a bit, if you never learned about it) it comes to your mind, that this was the capital of the impressive historical Austro-Hungarian empire. And that explains it. With all the carriages roaming around, you can easily picture the way this capital used to look in the past.Astonishing sites and places to visit. Hard to take it all in a single visit.
