It’s been so long since I wrote the last post. I’ve been so busy since then; going on holidays, working, going back home and moving out again.
But I’m back and a bit more settled so I hope I will be able to continue writing in this blog more often.
So let’s go back to the blog. I travelled in May to Vienna, to visit some friends of mine and to enjoy that wonderful and beautiful city I once lived in. It brought me memories from 4 years ago. I was happy living there, it was like everyday I travelled back in times of Empress Sissi. It is charming, has lots of culture and lots of things to do.
As you may know, Vienna is the capital and the largest city of Austria. It’s considered as the City of Music, as many famous musicians, such as Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert or Mahler, worked here. In Vienna you can find many theatres and opera houses such as the Volkstheatre or the Wiener Staatsoper.
Another famous art of this country is the food, above all they are experts in confectionery. There’s nothing better than having a coffee and a piece of cake in one of the wonderful cafés around the city. One of this coffeeshops is the one called Café Central, in the city centre. It was opened in 1876 and it was a meeting place of intellectual people. It was closed at the end of the World Ward II and was reopened again in 1975. There is a big assortment of cakes, such as Sacher Torte or Apfel Strudel, and coffees. It’s a bit expensive, but absolutely worthy.
Speaking of food art, I can’t finish this post without showing you one of the most typical dishes of the viennese cuisine: the Wiener Schnitzel, a breaded and deep fried schnitzel made from veal usually served with potatoe salad. Delicious. And the best place where I’ve eaten one of those was in a restaurant called Zwölf Apostelkeller, an ancient cellar with an extensive wine list and candlelit dining room. Beautiful and warm.
So here ends the first part of Vienna. We will see what I write about in the next post. I hope you enjoy this one anyway.
Have a wonderful day travellers!
