Vienna, Austria (Marmoset II)
Collected by Barry Ritter
Stephansplatz 1, 1010 Wien, Austria
In the heart of Vienna sits St. Stephen's Cathedral. Built in the late 12th century, it's a grand piece of beauty borrowing both from the Romanesque and Gothic styles of architecture. Unlike St. Vitus in Prague, St. Stephen's shimmers with light...

The Naschmarkt is absolutely one of the things you have to experience during your stay in Vienna! Locals call Vienna’s largest inner-city market the “city’s stomach." The market is a unique place for strolling, admiring, discovering, and sampling....
Opernring 2, 1010 Wien, Austria
The Vienna State Opera is one of the more impressive sights you will get to see in Austria. If you cannot make it to one of the performances (or even if you can), you should definitely get a ticket to the behind the scenes tour. The operas and...

Friedrich-Schmidt-Platz 1, 1010 Wien, Austria

Michaelerkuppel, 1010 Wien, Austria
The Imperial Palace of Vienna is frankly overwhelming, whether you are a traveller on a 24-hour schedule or a lifetime local. It comprises 30+ buildings on a terrain the size of 34 soccer fields. As a 30-year local, I have had the luxury to slice...
Heldenplatz 21/4, 1010 Wien, Austria
Rounding out your visit to Hofburg Palace is the last of the great expansions to the palace by the Habsurgs. The building was done in true neoclassical style, obviously to make the royal family appear as mighty as Greek gods. A statue of Archduke...
Budapest, Vörösmarty tér 7-8, 1051 Hungary
