Trip to Vienna

Hope everyone had a nice weekend!

I was in Vienna from Friday to Sunday to see Klimt’s paintings and to explore the city. First I visited Leopold museum in the Museum Quarter to see his paintings including ‘Death and Life’ and ‘On Lake Attersea’ The museum had great collections of Gustav Klimt’s and Egon Schiele’s works.

On Saturday I went to Belvedere Palace to see Klimt’s one of the most famous painting ‘Kiss’ The palace was amazing, and I loved the room which was displaying Klimt’s famous paintings.

On Sunday I went to Secession Museum which displays the 34 meter-long painting ‘Beethoven Frieze’ painted by Klimt. Secession was a new art association founded by Gustav Klimt and a number of other artists in 1896 to break away from the main establishment of Viennese artists.

Vienna was a beautiful city with lots of museums, magnificent cathedrals and a lovely river view of Danube (Donau). If you haven’t been there yet, it’s worth visiting 🙂
