Eastern Europe Day 9 - Budapest to Vienna (Austria)

After crossing the border into Austria, we went to Parndorf Designer Outlet where we had 3 hours to ourselves for some solid shopping.

After Lunch, we arrived in the beautiful city of Vienna otherwise known as Wien. Vienna represents the glorious legacy of the illustrious Habsburg Dynasty. Our city tour made rounds to Ringstrasse to Opera House, Hofburg, Parliament Building, Town Hall and the Burgtheater. The city is very big and is in a loop so our coach made one loop around all the famous buildings.

for us to walk the entire loop probably will take a few days!

Schonbrunn Palace

The Schonbrunn Palace is part of the World Cultural Heritage and Austria's most visited attraction. This Baroque synthesis of different arts, consisting of a palace and gardens, had been in the possession of the Habsburgs for centuries, and has been restored to its original condition. There are numerous attractions, from a tour through the authentically furnished residential and representational rooms of the impreial family in the palace, through a labyrinth in the garden to a separate children's musuem. The palace and gardens reflect the tastes, interests and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs.

Eastern Europe Day 8 - Budapest (Hungary)

We are doing the city tour of Budapest today!
The castle district is the premier destination for visitors and contains some of Budapest's most important monuments and museums. The main sights of the twin cities of Buda and Pest include Heroe's Squire, a magnificent reminder of Hungary's influence in the celebrated Austro-Hungarian Empire, Fisherman's Bastion and Gellert Hill, all of which offer panoramic views of the city.

We managed to capture the soldier's changing shifts!

Fisherman's Bastion

Danube Cruise.
It's an optional tour which cost us 30 Euros per person. It is an one hour cruise with a glass of drink. The Danube River is the frame of all the best Budapest views, the dividing line that gives the city its dual character and the second longest river in Europe.  It divides Budapest into Buda and Pest.
