Vienna 5
Rick Steves' Europe Travel Guide | In this program, we'll nibble chocolate cake at an Old World café, and marvel at the indomitable Gothic cathedral at the heart of town. Then we’ll tiptoe through the Hofburg Palace, be dazzled by the Habsburg crown jewels at the Imperial Treasury, sniff vinegar and Kraut at the Naschmarkt, and waltz to the three-four beat of Johann Strauss in Vienna's City Park.

Vienna is an introvert's dream city; everyone keeps to themselves, and that is considered normal.

I'm from krakow which was in austro-hungarian empire and I can see some similarities there's also a ring road where the walls used to be and big opera building but everything is on a smaller scale. And from what I see cafe Trzesniewski has been established by Mr. Trzesniewski from Krakow.

That last shot with the semi truck rolling by when he is talking about class and culture and history is hysterical! Perfect timing!

A few things I like to add to Mr. Steves' narrative, which was good as a general historical background for tourists, but still... That popular 'Hungarian uprising' he refers to in the middle of the video, was the 1848-49 Independence War, which the Habsburg forces were unable to defeat on their own. Only by overwhelming military intervention coming from the Russian czar, the Hungarians were finally overcome. The issue with Empress Sissi and her bittersweet story is also deserve to be expanded upon: Perhaps because of the stifling atmosphere in the Hofsburg,  or because of her own suffering under the oppressive and tyrannical mother-in-law Princess Sophie, she has sympathized with the plight of Hungarians early on, which led her to became an unofficial advocate, who helped the Austrian - Hungarian Compromise to be accomplished in 1867. Later she enjoyed extended periods of time in that part of her realm, learned that difficult language, and became a through and through friend. Her loving memory is still alive there.

The Kaisergruft is fascinating. Those who worked on the metal sculptures for the tombs were geniuses in their own right.
Do spend a few hours there. :)
