Pinsteps. The building of the Old Town Hall
Places to visit in Vienna. Languages: ru, he, en

The building of the Old City Council was a gift to Vienna from King Frederick III, also known as Frederick the Fair. He was indeed handsome but gained fame for his noble deeds. For instance, history doesn't know many rulers who, after failing to keep a promise, voluntarily went into exile. Here's the story: Frederick the Fair ruled Austria and Styria jointly with his brother Leopold in the distant 14th century. At that time, a major scandal erupted over the title of ruler of Bavaria and the German throne. Frederick suffered defeat and was released from captivity with the promise to persuade his brother Leopold to lay down arms. However, when Leopold refused to do so, Frederick returned to Munich to serve his punishment. This event later inspired Friedrich Schiller to create the plot for his poem "German Fidelity." Despite this, everything turned out well for Frederick. His actions impressed everyone, and he peacefully lived out his life in a castle near Vienna.

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.
