A Day In Vienna


(EN) Vienna is such a great city to visit even if you happen to have only one day to stay there. From Budapest it's easy to go to Vienna by train. There're several trains a day from early morning to late night almost on every hour. The journey takes about 2,5 hours depending on the train.

One of my favourite places in Vienna is Volksgarten with roses. There're around 400 different roses in every colour and the scent there is simply gorgeous. This garden is located beside Hofburg building and easy to find as it's in the centre of Vienna. The garden was made in 1821 as a private garden but in 1825 it was open as the first public garden for Viennase citizens. Since that the garden is known as Volksgarten (public garden). 

If you have time just for one museum, go & visit Albertina (Albertinaplatz 1). There are permanent collections including graphic art, photographic and architectural collections as well as changing exhibitions

When you're hungry and want real Viennase food, go to Cafe Central (Herrengasse 14) and order their Wiener Schnitzel - with that you can't go wrong!You might need to queue a bit during the lunch time but it's worth it. This 140 years old restaurant looks beautiful inside and the service is wonderful.







(FI) Wien on aina yhtä ihana paikka vierailla myös silloin kun aikaa on vain yksi päivä. Budapestista pääsee Wieniin kätevästi junalla, joita menee useampi päivässä lähes tunnin välein aamuvarhaisesta iltamyöhään. Matka kestää noin 2,5 tuntia riippuen junasta.

Yksi suosikkipaikkojani Wienissä on Volksgarten ruusutarhoineen. Puistossa on noin 400 erilaista ruusua kaikissa mahdollisissa väreissä ja tuoksu on yksinkertaisesti ihana. Volksgarten sijaitsee Hofburgin rakennusten vieressä kaupungin keskustan alueella ja on helppo löytää. Puutarha tehtiin alunperin yksityiskäyttöön vuonna 1823, mutta jo vuonna 1825 se avattiin wieniläisille ensimmäisenä yleisölle avoinna olevana puistona. Siitä lähtien se on tunnettu Volksgarten-nimellä (kansanpuisto). 

Jos on aikaa vain yhteen museoon, suosittelen Albertina (Albertinaplatz 1) Wienin keskustassa. Albertinan vakituiset kokoelmat sisältävät grafiikkaa, valokuvia ja arkkitehtuuria. Lisäksi tarjolla on korkeatasoisia vaihtuvia näyttelyitä.

Kun nälkä yllättää ja tekee mieli todellista wieniläistä ruokaa, kannattaa suunnata kohti Cafe Centralia (Herrengasse 14) ja tilata paikan wiener schnitzel. Sisälle saattaa joutua jonottamaan varsinkin lounasaikaan, mutta pieni seisoskelu on sen arvoista. 140 vuotta vanha ravintola on sisältä kaunis ja palvelu loistavaa.

  17. I can't help but fall in love with you pictures! I've never been to Vienna or anywhere in Austria. I think it's a lovely place, very peaceful and serene. The kind that you'd want to escape to to relieve stress or just get away from it all.
