Budapest.....Most of the old cities in Europe have a Palace for the King and a Theatre and Church were built next to the Palace. Nowadays, most of these building are converted into National Gallary, Art Museum, Theatre, etc., which reserved most of the cultures of their country......

The first one was the Palace but now a National Gallary, while the second one is the Church where most of the Hungarian King got their monarchy.....

Vienna - the capital of Music..........Really like their buildings with classic style.....some Greek some Roman......but with some modern art......

The first pic is the Hundredwasser which is a public housing building designed by a modern artist Hundredwasser ("hundred water") I don't really appreciate it however.....seems it is a bit unmatched with the classic atmosphere ........

The second one is the Helden Platz where Hilter had given a speech there just before WW2.......

Your theme for visiting Vienna must be something about music.......They have a number of statues of important musicians / composers there......

Beethoven, Mozart and Johann Strauss......The statue of Strauss is gold-plated by Japanese because they like his music very much.......but I don't like that shiny gold colour......

The second pic is the Parliament building of Austria, a classic Greek building........

Still in Vienna, Maria Theresa was the most influencial figure in East Europe as she affected the region for a few centuries.....

You can see quite a lot of her statues in East Europe, like the one shown in first pic........

A Palace again in Vienna.....Schonbrunn ....it is very much like the one in French......Versailles......but this one is smaller.....tho still big.....

Salzburg.......This was a city for trading Salt, and this is where the name comes from....Salzburg means Salt City......

There are two things that make this city famous....The first thing is that here is the birth place of Mozart, the second thing is that the movie "Sounds of Music" was filmed here.......

If you can recall the scenes of movie, you may ring your bell on the first picture.......the Pavilion is much smaller than I expect......

Second pic shows the place where we can learn how to sing.....doe, a deer....a female deer......ray....a drop of golden sun.......

Third one is the Horse Pond......and .....me.....a name....I call myself......far......a long long way to run.......

Prague is beautiful......and artistic......the Vltava River runs through the city.....

The third  pic is the old town hall tower with a clock there.....it will have some mechanical movements turned up every hour and it attracts a lot of people staying there to watch...but it is just like the one in New World Centre, TST......
