Pinsteps. Neuer Market, Vienna

The Ambassador Hotel closes the south side of the new market square. Thanks to the support of the US Embassy, on April 21, 2010, a memorial plaque was installed on the hotel’s facade. It says that Mark Twain stayed at this hotel from October 1898 to May 1899. He also stayed at the Metropole Hotel on Morzinplatz from September 1897 to May 1898 and spent the summer at Villa Paulhof in Kaltenleutben, where his wife and daughter Jane received treatment at the spa. Mark Twain himself and his daughter Klara did not like water procedures. Twain devoted much time to work, despite the dissatisfaction of his girls. In justification, Twain, with his inherent humor, said: “As soon as I went for a walk along the hills, the fog immediately enveloped me with my thick blanket. I fear that my view of things will be blurred.” Just a few years before the fateful 20th century, in 1897, Mark Twain from Austria wrote the famous article Steering times in Austria. (Time of troubles in Austria - free translation) In addition to Mark Twain, the following people stayed at this hotel: Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Ford III, Thornton Wilder, Marlene Dietrich, Romy Schneider, Josephine Baker, Svyatoslav Richter, Robert Schumann, Louis Trenker, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru Princess Elena of Greece and Princess Maria Alexandria Victoria of Edinburgh. Well, we have to check out at the fountain in the center of the square and find out the fate of his sculptures, and the Vienna Woods and Baden are waiting for us tomorrow.

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
