The second day in Vienna

City Park, Karl's Church and the Imperial Treasures Museum

sunny 10 °C

Today the weather was very nice, not only sunny, but also warm.

After taking wonderful breakfast in the hotel, we drove to the city park.

It was a very big park, and there were many famous peoples' statuaries. Actually, this should be a very beautiful park, but in winter, there were not many colorful flowers and green leaves, so it made the park look not enough nice. However, we still could find many people coming here, and enjoying the sunshine.

Well, in this park, i found some people sitting around on the ground, guess what they were doing? ---They were making Fa Lun Gong!!! I was very surprised to see that, and among them, there were some chinese people. But my honey did not know about the evil belief, even never heard it, so for him, it was a very normal scene.

In between is a statue of Maria Theresa, an excellent Empress of Austria. Under her reign Austria prospered and so people still remember her until today.
