Excursion to the Austrian Parliament

Each year, since 1965, in Austria celebrated the National Day (Austria. Nationalfeiertag). From 1955 to 1965, he was celebrated as the Flag Day (Austria. "Tag der Fahne"). In this holiday in some government offices are open days. The most interesting thing for me was to get to the Austrian Parliament. This is an interesting beautiful building with Roman columns, around which tourists like to be photographed. Parliament is in the ring (Doktor-Karl-Renner-Ring), in close proximity of all central attractions Vienna area between Maria Teresa Platz and Town Hall.

To get inside, you had to defend a rather big place.

Austrian Parliament Building, was built in 1874-1883 years. In front of him is high statue of Pallas Athena. Sculpture, lying at the feet of Athens represent the four most important rivers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire: the Danube, Inn, Elbe and Vltava. In the photo below them clearly visible.
