Vienna, Wien - Day two again...

We strolled away from the Ring street just briefly, I had to show Ian Karlskirche (Charles' church..not so glam in English!). It was such a shame to see that we couldn't just wonder into the church to see the amazing interior. It was one of my favorite churches ever and such a privilege should not be denied and should not be charged 6euros for!!

Vienna has certainly learnt how to spike its tourists. There are plenty of sits to see, but you have to pay for all of them!

Back in the day, there was a regular tram line that ran around the ring street on it's usual journey. Now, the number two tram runs a different route and the ring street has a special (higher price of course) golden tram!

We spotted a few more museums along our paths and hoped that there would be time to visit them during our stay. There were many extra Klimt exhibitions as part of his 150th anniversary - would we be able to see them all...?


On the Ring street once again, we cruised into Stadtpark and enjoyed the quiet calm of the green park, including the statue of Johan Strauss.
