some history

The Votivkirche (English: Votive Church) is a neo-Gothic church located on the Ringstraße in Vienna, Austria. Following the attempted assassination of Emperor Franz Joseph in 1853, the Emperor’s brother Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian inaugurated a campaign to create a church to thank God for saving the Emperor’s life. Funds for construction were solicited from throughout the Empire. The church was dedicated in 1879 on the silver anniversary of Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Empress Elisabeth.

Always a nice visit with Austrian tradition.

The Viennese coffee house has been a fixture of the Austrian gastronomy culture for centuries. This tradition is lived on and maintained in our days. Since its opening in the 19th century, Café Schwarzenberg has been a popular meeting place for Viennese and Vienna visitors.
