AHHH VIENNA! I was lucky enough to go for a long weekend, which excitingly for me and to the dismay of my longsuffering partner in crime, meant a mad dash around museums. I managed to see seven of (if a quick google search is to be believed) out of around 100, so this is by no means an exhaustive list.

I crammed a lot into three days and this is my list, in no particular order, of the highlights. Continue reading “Prague Museums”
