Discovering Vienna -7/25/2018
Walking from our hotel to the main places we wanted to see in Vienna.
UPS guy see how small his truck is compare to the U.S. He is operating on what looks like to be a bicycle but it also has motor.
In the U.S. they have a huge truck to drive around.
Random places around our neighborhood.
This is a street leading to the most famous shopping street in Central Vienna
This street is called:Kärntner Straße (Corinthian Street)
A Coffee shop with tables that are set up on the street.
We just cruising along...
Flakturm V L-Tower Esterhazypark - There are three Flak Towers in Vienna: The L-Tower, the V L-tower, and the tower near the Obere Augartenstrasse survived to this day.
Flak Towers were structures made of concrete that were used for anti-aircraft defense and as civilian shelters during bombing raids in Germany and Austria.
In Berlin, three were built, two have survived the war and are still standing today.
After the war, the demolition of the towers was often considered not feasible and many remain to this day, with some having been converted for alternate use.
Today the tower is converted into an aquarium "Aqua Terra Zoo Wien", with more than 3,500 animals in an area of 6,000 m2.
The outside is converted into a climbing wall.
If Kevin was here I am sure he will definitely try to climb this wall.
Since the 16th century people in Austria has come to the Naschmarkt to buy a variety of products which would be brought here by vendors of the city farmers from the outside of the city, and those that came from overseas by boats and ships from different parts of the world that were once connected to the Austrian empire.
Today the market serves a wide variety of different purposes, serving not only the local residents of the area who come here to do their daily food shopping, but also visitors from around the globe who come to enjoy the main sights and sounds of the market.
