So, this blog is about Vienna, so I won’t do a lot of posts from my holiday. But a few… I’ve spent the last week in my hometown and surrounding areas.

The construction of the Upper Belvedere began as early as 1717, as testified by two letters that Prince Eugene sent from Belgrade to his servant Benedetti in summer 1718, describing the progress of work on the palace. Construction was so far advanced by 2 October 1719 that the prince was able to receive the Turkish ambassador Ibrahim Pasha there
Yes, we also have one here in Vienna. Today looked like a perfect day for it. 🙂 even though it’s reputation for being a place for the posh people has kept me away till this day and beyond…
