The first day we were there, we wandered by ourselves and had a drink at night with our host who was lovely! Vienna has a very European, almost elegant looking downtown. All the buildings are very well kept and many of the facades are very elaborate. I think that's why I liked it so much! It also felt very old world. There were lots of horse-drawn carriages and people dressed up like Even though it is a large European city, it felt warm and welcoming. I really liked Vienna a lot and hope to go back again someday to see more!

Pretzels as big as your head!
Since there was a fee and my friend didn't want to go, I visited the National Library, Österreichische Nationalbibliothek, on my own. To say this place was amazing would be an understatement. If I could live in a dream world, this would be my library and I would flit around reading and sailing around on the rolling ladders.
After the library, we stumbled upon a band playing in a big square. It added quite a bit of atmosphere to hear them playing while you were walking along taking in the sights.

Tomorrow, I'll show you the rest of our time in Vienna. We headed over to Schonbrunn Palace which was amazing!
