Vienna

Hi friends!

Now, if you haven’t read myย last two blog posts on Budapest, Prague and Vienna, where have you been?! Only joking ๐Ÿ™‚ Welcome, and I’m glad you have joined us. Check out my ‘Travel’ tab and you will find the posts there, with an explanation of this little ‘series’ of posts.

So onto today’s instalment! ๐Ÿ™‚

Vienna:

Vienna is Austria’s capital city, and is also the country’s largest city. It is located on the east of Austria, along the Danube River.

Vienna has been known as both “The City of Music”, and “The City of Dreams”, due to its cultural legacy of composers and musicians (such as Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, Bruckner, Haydn, Mahler and Strauss), but also because of the well known psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud who entered the University of Vienna at the age of 17 (although he was born in the Czech Republic).

Prague

Happy Friday, everyone!

Following on from my introductory post on my upcoming travel adventures (https://livingfully2017.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/budapest-prague-vienna-lets-go/), here is my first fact in the series about Prague.

Prague:

Prague is the capital city of the Czech Republic, and is known as ‘The City of a Hundred Spires’, based on the count (103) of the Czech 19th Century mathematician Bernard Bolzano.

Today, it is estimated that Prague is now the city of over 500 spires! I wonder how many you can count in this picture? ๐Ÿ™‚
