Vienna Part II: Roses

Grab a cup of tea and make yourself comfortable - this post is epic ...

There was a beautiful rose garden near the Rathaus... we were here for a long time...

 The Karlskirche is absolutely beautiful - you can go up inside the dome and see the frescoes up close which is amazing.

The adorable cafe inside the Sacher Hotel... We had traditional Viennese Sacher Torte which was a surprisingly light and lovely chocolate cake.

The Belvedere is a Baroque Palace sitting atop beautiful gardens. Inside is a lovely museum and art gallery. They had a whole gallery of Klimt paintings that were amazing. I'd never been particularly fond of Klimt but seeing the paintings in real life as opposed to just prints was really eye opening. The gold on his paintings really sparkles and the pictures just draw you in.

 Awesome column inside the Belvedere's entrance hall...

Chicken stuffed with mushrooms and ham on a mushroom risotto - so yummy!
