Pinsteps. Klein palais, Vienna

In 1867, the architect Karl Tietz constructed a three-story building for the Klein industrialist family. The rear wing was destroyed in 1945. The strict palace is designed in the Neo-Renaissance style. The columned portico of the arched portal was demolished in 1958, and the side niches were broken to create entrances. In 1989, the palace underwent restoration. In the Beletage, you can observe a well-preserved interior ensemble: a three-story hall with a ceiling fresco "The Foundation of the Hearth" is accompanied by a suite consisting of a hall and two salons. The ballroom is adorned with light-blue wall panels and a ceiling depiction of the seasons. The Klein family was involved in the construction of iron and, especially, railway bridges. The Klein brothers were among the pioneers of railway construction in the monarchy. The first route, built in 1837, ran from Vienna to Gänserndorf (Kaiser Ferdinand Nordbahn). In 1847, the Gebrüder Klein company was founded. By 1873, the Klein brothers had built over 3500 kilometers of railway lines throughout the monarchy. In 1844, the brothers acquired factories in Zöptau (Czech: Sobotin). Owning this industrial complex allowed the company to produce the steel needed for their own constructions. In Zöptau, a bridge-building factory was established, initially comprising chain bridges and later other steel bridges. By 1898, 1436 railway bridges had been produced.

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.
