Stormy April Weather
View from Prince Eugene's Belvedere


View from the Upper Belvedere
On a stormy April afternoon


At the bottom of the gardens, the Lower Belvedere Palace,
the Inner City beyond, with the steeple of St. Stephen's cathedral,
and the hills and vineyards of the 19th District meeting the horizon

  2. The same Belvedere where the 'dame in gold' was hung all the years before it was returned to its heirs?

    1. There's a kaffeehaus in the Upper Belvedere, the "Menagerie".
      The closest large one is the Schwarzenberg Cafe, at Schubertring.
      Thank you for the good wishes and the best to you, too,
      Merisi

  5. Merisi, these views are spellbinding (as the Sphinx is well aware.)

    I love the contrast of the orderly architectural perspective at ground level and the glorious open sky above.

    Wow! xo
