48h in VIENNA: Schönbrunn Palace

Schönbrunn Palace grand and imperial tour photos

Somehow the best is always left for the end. So this short tour of Vienna city we ended with a visit to the famous Schönbrunn palace. The beautiful baroque palace together with its gardens is on the UNESCO list and it's the most visited tourist location of Vienna (in 2017 more than 3.5 million tourists visited the palace). I have already mentioned Schönbrunn palace, which is known as the summer residence of Austrian rulers, when I wrote about the Hofburg palace.

Najbolje se nekako uvek ostavlja za kraj. Tako da smo i mi ovu kratku turu grada Beč završili posetom i obilaskom čuvene Schönbrunn (Šenbrun) palate. Predivna barokna palata se zajedno sa svojim vrtovima nalazi na UNESCO listi i najposećenija je turistička lokacija Beča (u 2017-oj godini je posetilo vise od 3.5 miliona turista). Ovu palatu sam već spominjala kada sam pisala o Hofburg palati, te sam napomenula da je Schönbrunn bila letnja rezidencija austrijskih vladara.

The official tour begins with a tour of the interior rooms, in a precise order. Usually there are two types of tours, "Grand" and "Imperial", and they differ in the number of rooms that are included in the tour. "Imperial" tour includes 22 rooms where you can see for example the private apartments of Franz Joseph and Queen Elisabeth called Sisi. "Grand" tour includes also the rooms (40 rooms) that date from the time of Maria Theresa, and for this tour you need approximately one hour. From all the rooms my favorites are Great gallery and Small gallery with mirrors and ornate golden decoration, which irresistibly remind me on the Palace of Versailles and The Hall of Mirrors... Of course taking photos isn't permitted inside, so no pictures this time...:) 

Tura započinje obilaskom unutrašnjih prostorija, po tačno odredjenom redosledu. Obično postoje dve vrste tura, to su "Grand" i "Imperial", a razlikuju se po broju prostorija koje su uključene u turu. "Imperial" tura obuhvata obilazak 22 sobe gde se mogu videti recimo privatni apartmani Franca Jozefa i kraljice Elizabete zvane Sisi. "Grand" tura obuhvata i prostorije (oko 40) koje datiraju iz vremena Marije Terezije, i za nju treba odvojiti oko sat vremena. Meni su od svih prostorija u najlepšem sećanju ostale Velika i Mala galerija sa ogledalima i kitnjastom zlatnom dekoracijom koje me neodoljivo podsećaju na Versajsku palatu i njenu Dvoranu ogledala... Naravno slikanje unutra nije dozvoljeno, tako da nema slika ovoga puta...:)

After visiting the interior of the palace, we decided to take a walk and see its well known gardens. Unfortunately it was a short walk because it was extremely cold. The rest of the free time we spent in a pleasant atmosphere of a cafe-restaurant "Residenz" drinking cappuccino and learning how they make the famous apple strudel... 

Nakon obilaska unutrašnjeg dela palate, usledila je šetnja vrtovima. Doduše kratka šetnja jer je bilo izuzetno hladno. Ostatak slobodnog vremena proveli smo u prijatnom ambijentu kafe-restorana "Residenz" ispijajući cappuccino i gledajući kako se pravi čuvena štrudla sa jabukama...
