In our first post, we decided to guide you through the inside of one of the most popular sights of Vienna – Rathaus Vienna City Hall. Last Sunday, more than 1500 rooms of Rathaus were open for public. Despite long lines, all the waiting and bad weather, we decided to join the other 30 000 visitors and explore the interior of this extraordinary building. What impressed us the most was the magnificent ballroom, which you can see at the pictures we posted down below.
Rathaus is definitely worth a visit and we highly recommend it!

General Information about Rathaus:

U našem prvom postu, odlučile smo da vas sprovedemo kroz unutrašnjost jednog od simbola Beča, Rathausa – Gradske skupštine.
Prošle nedelje je bio dan otvorenih vrata Rathausa, kada je posetiocima bilo omogućeno da se slobodno šetaju kroz ovu velelepnu građevinu. Dugi redovi i čekanja praćeni lošim vremenom, nisu sprečili nas i još 30 000 posetilaca da istražujemo raskošne prostorije Gradske skupštine. Na nas je najupečatljiviji utisak ostavila preplepa balska dvorana, čije ćete slike moći da vidite u ovom postu.
Ukoliko prilikom posete Beča budete imali malo više slobodnog vremena, nemojte propustiti da obiđete Rathaus!

Uopšteno o Rathausu:
Monumentalna Gradska skupština izgrađena je 1883. godine u gotičkom stilu, po projektu Fridriha Šmita. Sadrži 7 dvorišta i 1575 soba, gde se nalaze kancelarije bečkog Gradskog veća i gradonačelnika.
