Fantastic weekend in Vienna

When sun is shining, weather is lovely and there are no clouds on the sky, we are a lot more interested in sightseeing. If you like to explore some nice metropolis you don’t need to waste entire week, just longer weekend will be enough. One of the finest capitals in entire Europe is Vienna in Austria. Which monuments in there are nicest?

Mode of transportation

From each of Polish, international airports you are able to get to this beautiful city. You can book a ticket several months ahead to pay the lowest prices, like 100 zlotys for a trip in both directions. However not everyone like to fly, still a lot of people are avoiding this mode of transportation. If you are living in the southern west part of Poland, you can travel to Vienna using also train, bus or car. If you will use a high way, entire drive will take about three hours. Train is the most expensive option, especially if you don’t have a student discount. However it is very comfortable mode of transportation. 

Amazing architecture

In the area of capital you can find at least three beautiful palaces, designed in the Classical style. Those are Hoftburg, Schonbrunn and Belveder. Each one was some of the residence of former royals, the most phenomenal is second one, with amazing, French gardens around it.

Another great monument in Vienna is the City Hall, constructed in Gothic Revival style, in the late nineteenth century. It is situated in the center of the city, you will find plenty of pubs, restaurants and gift shops nearby. And if you wish to see a true Gothic building from medieval times, you can go to the Saint Stephen cathedral, one of the finest churches like that in entire world.
