In 1881, Franz Yosif ordered the expansion of the Hofburg Palace and adjacent territories in order to conduct lush imperial ceremonies. For the largest in the history of the imperial forum, naturally, a place was chosen to the south of the historic Hofbugra. Before us is the reverse side of the west wing of the new palace, facing the imperial garden. Today it houses the national library and several museums. One of them is the largest collection of knightly armor and weapons in the world. The other is the museum of musical instruments. In the same year, in March, the Russian Emperor Alexander II was mortally wounded on the embankment of the Ekaterininsky Canal in St. Petersburg. His brother Alexander III will become the emperor of the Russian empire, and the murder of Franz Yosif’s nephew Ferdinand in 1914 will lead to the reorganization of the world.
