Vienna and Budapest December 2016

In the days leading up to new year I travelled to Vienna with my Mum for four nights. There is so much to see and do and we enjoyed our time exploring the city the centre on the first night and following day:

And this is the view after 343 steps to the top of the south tower of St Stephan's Cathedral

The second evening we went to see a concert at the Musikverein

On our final day we took the two hour trip to the capital of Hungry, Budapest. Starting in Heroes Square

Then heading over to the hilly 'Buda' side and Fisherman's Bastion, giving great views over the parliament building on the opposite side

Then down to Pest and the incredible views of the Danube and Buda on the opposite side.

That night a very packed Vienna enjoyed 'Silvester' the New Year's Trail with free concerts across the city.

And then we came home.

Next week work is flying me to Santiago, Chile to join Norwegian Sun for my next contract. Providing everything goes to plan it's going to be an incredible six months for travel and I look forward to updating my blog on my return!

    Thanks for contributing to posting these images for us. Hope you’ll continue posting. Do you have any article on image masking service?

  2. Vienna, Austria, is some 150 miles northwest of Budapest, Hungary. Both cities are major transport hubs, so you have several options for travel between the two cities. I like Vienna more than Budapest.

  3. Vienna is a city with a long cultural tradition. It is the capital of the Republic of Austria and by far the largest city in Austria with large population.
