Week 10 & 11 – The Heart of Europe

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 🙂

In Budapest, once again, the metro was our transportation. But this time it was different, the metro was really old. 😛

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.

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

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.
