After finishing our 6th project in Prague we had a few days to explore new countries and learn new cultures. Our first stop was Vienna, in Austria, where we went to center by metro and visited the beautiful gardens of the Schönbrunn Palace.
After the Palace, we went to the Museumquartier, an area with 60,000 m². It is the largest cultural area in Europe.
While strolling around on the main street of Vienna we found one of the most popular markets, the Julius Meinl. It is well known by having products from all over the world! We found Portugal very well represented in this large market 🙂
By the end of the day we visited the Wurstelprater, one of the oldest amusement parks in Europe, and of course, we went to the Wiener Riesenrad, the famous big wheel of Vienna. +photos
After Vienna, we decided to go to Bratislava in Slovakia where we spent a beautiful day exploring the city.
In Budapest, once again, the metro was our transportation. But this time it was different, the metro was really old. 😛
When we arrived at the center our first stop was the Great Market Hall of Budapest. +photos
We also visited the Dohány Street Synagogue, the largest synagogue in Europe.
In Zagreb, Croatia, we started the day between the various outdoor markets around the city. There is a market in every district of Zagreb that sells domestic products, and of course, we had to try some of their typical food.
One of the most beautiful streets in Zagreb. It is a street full of bars and shops with an old house with a sun clock.
We had the chance to go to Kula Lotrščak, a medieval tower right in the center of the city. Inside there is a canon from the 19th century that fires every day at noon. +photos
We also had the chance to see a World War II Tunnel that opened to the public this year.
After a long day in Zagreb, we waited for the train at the beautiful Art Pavilion gardens near the Zagreb Main Railway Station, Glavni Kolodvor. +photos
After Zagreb, we went to Ljubljana, in Slovenia. We visited an amazing place called Metelkova. It's an alternative and underground spot with a unique atmosphere. +photos
In the afternoon we went to the old town and the castle, and we found a place with some great views of the city.
Finally in Italy! Our first stop was Venice, and it's definitely one of the most beautiful cities we have ever been. +photos
Near the St Mark's Square, the principal public square of Venice, there is this bridge called the Bridge of Sighs. It was the last view of Venice that convicts saw before their imprisonment.
We finished our day drinking the famous Spritz, an aperitif that originated in this area of Italy. +photos
Today we are still in Italy, and we'll be here until the end of the month. The next country is Switzerland where we have a new project waiting. We can't wait to share more of it with you! Follow us on Instagram for our daily photos and stay tuned for the next blog post!
