Vienna

Saturday, 22, 2010; sixth day of the International Training Programme at ICPE, Slovenia and it was the day for second field trip; our destination was Vienna - the capital city of Austria (the previous day we visited Venice). Apart from the status of the capital city, Vienna is also one of the nine states in the Republic of Austria. It is also the prominent cultural, economic and political centre of Austria.

Our bus started from Hotel Austria Trend at 7.30AM. The distance from Ljubljana, Slovenia to Vienna, Austria is around 383 km and it took around 4 hours to reach Vienna. The highway to Vienna goes through the enchanting beauty of Slovenian villages.


Our first destination was Schonbrunn Palace, the historic home of the Hapsburg rulers and now one of the most important historic places in Austria. The Palace is on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List since 1996. The palace is under the administrative control of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth. The Schloss Schönbrunn Kultur- und Betriebsges.m.b.H. (SKB), a limited-liability company is in charge of managing the palace. The palace complex is consisted of the imperial apartments, gardens, park with its numerous architectural features, fountains and statues and a zoo.
