This morning I woke up to Winterwonderland ♥. Finally! Join me on a walk at Stadtpark and enjoy the white blanket – it has already melted and is gone again!
In the Biedermeier period, the glacis before the Karolinenstadttor (Caroline City Gate) was a popular site of entertainment. During the demolition of the city walls and the creation of the Vienna Ringstraße in its place about 150 years ago, the mayor at that time, Andreas Zelinka, promoted the project of creating a public park on the territory: Stadtpark was opened in August 1862 as Viennas first public park.
Vienna´s Ringstraße (The Vienna Ring) is celebrating its 150th birthday this year – it was opened on May 1st 1865 by Emperor Franz Joseph. I´m going to show a lot of its buildings, parks and monuments throughout this year.
