Two days in Vienna, Austria

My most memorable event in Vienna, capital of Austria, was a visit to the Schonbrunn Palace. Amidst the opulence of the palace rooms lay the death mask of a young man clutching his pet bird, a crested lark. This bird lover was the son of Napolean who conquered Vienna twice. The only legitimate son of Napolean with Marie Louise.

Sadly I could not take a photograph as photography is prohibited inside the palace.

Vienna has, however, a lot to offer and the slide show below is but a teaser!
