1st Visit to Vienna

After Milan, Claudia and I took Monday off from work to visit Vienna for the first time.

Wien ("Vienna"), is Austria's capital and about 86 miles from Brno.

With about 2.3 million people in the metro area, Vienna has more than 25% of Austria's population. It is the 10th largest city by population in the European Union.

We went to Vienna just to walk around and see the city. It is an extremely beautiful city and I'll be sure to get back there soon to really spend some time seeing everything.

We also wanted to see the Christmas market and it was awesome! The city invested 1.3 million euros for publicity, decorations, lighting and children's activities. I'll post about European Christmas markets later.

A few more pictures are alreay posted on Flickr.
