relax

First of all, as an answer to Dan's question from yesterday, the Romanian National Day is on the 1st of December to celebrate the union of the three countries: Valachia, Moldavia and Transilvania into a single one: Romania. This took place on the 1st of December 1918, and it was the only moment when, even if for a brief period of time, Romania was at its peak from territorial point of view, uniting under one ruler all historical territories inhabited by Romanians.

Back to Vienna, a relaxing photo from Stadtpark...
Have a great Sunday!

  3. Stadtpark is a quite nice place to relax, even if the underground has an open sky station there...
