Vienna is one of the largest and most beautiful capitals in Europe. It is a quiet town, clean, even where there are construction area is fenced. A city where thieves do not belong, for instance, some products were displayed at a store out, I went in and there was nobody, just somewhere in the back, two salesman were still not worrying about the merchandise from outside or from front. It left me a pleasant taste and I would like to be like so everywhere, that people do not need to worry for their goods. Trains are suspended and extremely well soundproofed, although above is outdoors, on the street you won't hear when the trains pass. However, the transportion costs are a little expensive - 2.5 euro per trip ...

O plimbare de seară pe cinste pe aleea din fața parlamentului A lovely evening walking on the alley in front of the parliament.
Do not miss the Belvedere Palace. It is absolutely gorgeous, the park offers a dreamlike spot. Many statues, water, a park built with great taste.
Worth seeing if you're passing.
Personally I didn't found something impressive.
If is on the way, I recommend you to see the futuristic design of the house Haas.
Maybe not the greatest variety of fish and marine animals, but I really liked how everything is ordered: a building with seven floors if I am right, you go to the top floor with an elevator (a little scary if you look up in the elevator you see as you approach the top floor and you have the feeling that you'll never stop). From here you visit all kinds of aquarium with fish, sharks, turtles etc on each floor, down to the next and so on. You go over a rope bridge - very nice. I was very impressed by a longish shy fish hiding in the sand whenever we see him. We had the opportunity to see some snakes which were fed with mice.
It is somewhere in the center of the city. Built in 13 Cetury, it has been extended by architects from time-to-many.
I honestly does not deserve to go up there to see it unless you are in the way.

If you come to Vienna, do not forget to reach the amusement park. It is quite large and very nice. Unfortunately during the time we arrived was overhaul, not too many open areas. I did not dare to subscribe to the tall chains. Once up, you can scream all you want - no one can hear you.
City Hall and Rathaus Square see on the map
One of the most beautiful locations in Vienna from my point of view. During our stay in the square, there were all kinds of cabins where they sold sweets, toys..everything. The fair begins in November and ends after the New Year. Dreamy.

Unfortunately you cannot see the flyers in photos very well but there you do. Very nicely arranged on a space not very big, you'll find here a small imitation of the natural wilderness. Indoor humidity is very high, it will cover camera lens with mist in seconds. Fortunately wears off after a few minutes.
