Pinsteps. The monument to Anton Bruckner in Vienna
Places to visit in Vienna. Languages: ru, he, en

Anton Bruckner was born in Ansfelden, Upper Austria, in 1824, and he passed away in Vienna in 1896. He rests in a crypt at the St. Florian Abbey. Just three years after his death, a monument was unveiled in the city park, designed by Victor Tilgner and Fritz Zerritsch. Although this monument suffered vandalism, it was restored and later relocated to the garden of the Music University. The current pedestal, crafted by artist Stefan Kamesky, replaces the original design, providing better protection against vandals. Unfortunately, vandalism of monuments is a common occurrence in the city park. The history of this destructive behavior is said to begin with far-right elements whose ideals of an Austria for Austrians led them to deface monuments of those they deemed afflicted with liberalism, openness, and tolerance. Ironically, modern vandalism has become a tradition among assorted troublemakers devoid of any particular views or ideals, except for simple hooliganism and lawlessness.

Vienna. The Ringstrasse.

A leisurely stroll through the historic part of the city unfolds a tapestry of enchanting landmarks. The city park, adorned with the melodies of Strauss and Schubert, leads to the venerable city gates named after Luger and Mozart. The narrative of "Ah, My Sweet Augustine" echoes through time, while the oldest church in the city stands as a testament to bygone eras. The tales of Theodor Herzl, the anchor clocks, the Jewish quarter, the square where it all began, the longest narrow alley, the Estergazi restaurant, and Andersen's house weave together seamlessly.

Wander down Graben Street, passing by the plague column and fountains, where the stories of homes, people, words, legends, and traditions blend harmoniously. Amidst it all, relish the charm of restaurants, cafes, wines, and coziness that add an extra layer of warmth to this rich tapestry of history and culture.
