Pinsteps. Donnerbrunnen, Vienna
Places to visit in Вена. Languages: ru, he, en

The Thunder Fountain in the center of the New Market was conceived and named the Providentia Fountain, however, for residents of the city it was easier and clearer to call it by the name of the creator - George Raphael Donner. So, the name Donnerbrunnen was fixed. Also, the name New Market did not immediately take root. This square was called the flour market. Under the rule of Maria Theresa, the nudity of the characters was considered offensive. At the initiative of the Chastity Commission, they were removed in 1773, and the sculptor Johann Martin Fischer was authorized to melt them. However, the sculptures were preserved in 1801, recognizing their high artistic value, the sculptures were returned to their original place. But already in 1873, the originals were replaced with bronze copies, and real sculptures adorn the center of the baroque department of the Belvedere Gallery. Translated with Google Translate

Albertina and Stephen's Cathedral.

From Stephansplatz through the ancient Karststrasse to the Albertina Gallery. In Albertine, there was a Monet exhibition, when the works of this artist were brought from different museums of the world and exhibited together, presenting the same places at different times of the year or at different times of the day. And the walk ended on the square of the old market, the funny story of Mark Twain. Translated with Google Translate
