The southwest wing of the Hofburg Palace, the Neue Burg (New Castle) was built in 1913. 
It was from this very balcony that on March 15, 1938, Adolf Hitler proclaimed the “Anschluss” of Austria into the Third Reich. 
A small step at that time, it emboldened Hitler in his quest to create the ‘Third Reich’ where he would unite all the German-speaking Europeans scattered across nations, into one ‘Greater Germany’. .

Commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph, the Vienna Opera House was formally consecrated in 1869. 
Tragedy struck Vienna in 1938 when the Nazis began their brutal occupation of Austria. Under the Nazis, many members of the house were driven out, pursued, and killed, and many works were not allowed to be played.

The Opera House was devastated in a bombing in 1945 but as a testimony to the tenacity of Austrians, it was being rebuilt by 1955, as the country got back on its feet, slowly but steadily.

In 1809, Napoleon had attempted to cross the Danube river and lay siege to Vienna. Under the able leadership of Archduke Charles, the Austrians were able to defeat Napoleon and his allies. 
This battle is remembered for being the first battle that Napoleon had personally been defeated in over almost a decade. 
It was this stunning victory which led to Archduke Charles being regarded and revered as a national hero by the Austrians. 
Thus, this equestrian statue was consecrated in 1859 to commemorate his contribution to Austria. . . .

A testimony to the brilliance of Baroque architecture, Peterskirche in Vienna, is one of the oldest churches here, having been consecrated in the early half of the 4th century.

A kaleidoscope of ornamentation in the middle of a crowded street in Vienna, every single inch of the church is embellished in the most stunning hues.

A true embodiment of the brilliance of the Baroque architecture.

The imperial Hofburg Palace used to be the winter residence of Habsburg Empire. From 1438 to 1583 and from 1612 to 1806, it was the seat of the kings and emperors of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, thereafter the seat of the Emperor of Austria until 1918. Today it is the official seat of the Austrian Federal President.

Pictured here is the statue of Emperor Francis II by Pompeo Marchesi, built in 1846.

On the western side of the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, stands the imperial St. Augustine Church, which used to be the court church during the eponymous empire.

The best time to visit is during sunset, when for a brief window of 10 minutes, the imposing tower is illuminated by the receding rays of the sun.

The Great Plague of Vienna was one of the most devastating events in Viennese history which resulted in the death of around 70,000 people. 
Though the epidemic was cured using the learnings of early modern medicine, the column became a mode of socio-religious propaganda as well. 
Religious iconography and Hapsburg dynastic motifs were juxtaposed to symbolise that faith and the empire triumphed over the epidemic.

Lots of pictures from the imperial city of Vienna coming up on my feed very soon ❤️ #vienna #austria #europe #travel
Post the Communist takeover of Czechoslovakia, this wall, near the French Embassy in Prague, became the go-to spot for people resisting the communist atrocities. Because of its close proximity to a foreign nation’s embassy, the police wouldn’t take strict action against the protesters. Thus this wall came to be known as the Crying Wall, because it became the symbol of resistance against forced Communist rule. 
After John Lennon’s murder in 1980, he became a pacifist hero for the youth in Prague. They began painting his lyrics onto the wall and it was christened the Lennon Wall. 
Today, the wall has endured multiple layers of whitewashing and erasing of graffiti so very little remains of the original graffiti. But the wall remains a pacifist symbol of resistance in the face of atrocities and is regarded as one of the places that represent Prague for what is truly is.

Ending the Prague city series on my feed with this since it’s my favourite picture from Prague! 
Vienna pictures coming up on my feed very soon 😊

Pictured here: Me trying to pose awkwardly in front of our hotel in Prague because it's such a beautiful facade 😄
