That’s as high as it gets in Vienna. It’s an office building and it will get a second and slightly lower tower on the other side of the street. That’s a big axis leading north, across the biggest bridge, and when it’s done, the two towers will form a giant gate.
Vienna has only a few highrise buildings, most on its periphery, some along the river. Most of them are solitary towers like this one.
Why not visit Bratislava, Slovakia’s small but booming capital? Once there was a tramway line between the two cities, today you can make the trip by car in less than an hour, by train in similar time, but of course with both cities on the same river, a ship is a viable option.
That’s what I did and that’s what we’ll spend the next weeks with. Welcome aboard 😀
There are a few river ports in Vienna. This is the most western one in Nussdorf. The shore is narrow here, so everything’s a bit crowded 🙂
Graffiti have a certain quality of randomness and unrelatedness, or if they are related to something, it is at least not obvious to what. A “Zocker” is kind of a gamer, but can also be someone playing card games in a casino. This may relate to YouTube somehow, but … whatever 🙂
No problem, your needs can be catered to 🙂
Reminds me of a scene in Yellow Submarine: the attack of the Blue Meanies 🙂
This is Vienna’s City Hall. I’ve been here two times last year, once in the morning before an event where I had to present one of our programs, and the other time when I spent a day showing around my friend Ted Byrne. We’ll come to that day in time 🙂
This fishy mosaic is on a small fountain in the park in front of Vienna’s City Hall. It’s not very artful, but let’s not be too picky. At least it sports a lot of colors 🙂
Vienna likes to show off some history, even in its street signs 🙂
