Yet more Vienna...

Was having problems uploading more pics, so I've split it into 2 posts...continuing...

The Votivkirche (Votiv Church). The church was commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph after an attempt on his life was made. The Emperor survived, and ordered the church built on the spot where the attack happened. It is especially beautiful at night, when it is all lit up.

Some shots from the Naschmarkt, an outdoor food court and market. These are different oils and vinegars.The stalls and restaurants are all crammed together and cover about 2 blocks. It's a bustling place, and as you meander through you are seduced by the scents of flowers, fresh breads, fruits, vegetables, and the myriad cuisines being served there. Yum.

A giant vat of sauerkraut. (The one on the right was almost completely empty.)

F making use of his strong olfactory sense...there were lilac trees all over the city.

Even the water fountains are beautiful!
