Summer Road Trip 2006 - Vienna Continued

Vienna was definitely a cultural experience. Museums, churches and concerts everywhere. The museum above was the Sissi museum...one wing was completely full of incredible handpainted, gilded, silvered, mirrored pieces of you name it...chamber pots, table decor, serving pieces...such incredible wealth some barely used at all. No wonder the monarchy lost its popularity!

We attended a night concert of Mozart pieces. The musicians were dressed and arranged as they might have been in the 1800s and the pieces were presented in the type and arrangement as was popular then in Vienna. It was very beautiful. You didn't need much imagination to picture Vienna as it was.
