The Austrian capital Vienna is a city of architectural extravagance. Wide, sprawling avenues are flanked by huge variety of ornate and elegant buildings in every style imaginable. Palaces and Royal Residences are plentiful, amongst them, the beautifully baroque Schloss Belvedere. Built in the early 18th Century and consisting of a higher and lower section separated by lavish landscaped gardens, also in the Baroque style, this one is my favourite. High on a hill, the Upper Belvedere, pictured here, is the perfect spot to watch the sun disappear behind the city and leave behind a glowing panorama of domed churches and tall spires twinkling as they catch the last rays of the fading day. Schloss Belvedere Vienna has a little added texture to complete the historic feel.
