Postcard from Austria!

Today I got a nice postcard from Austria! The card shows a nice view of Schönbrunn Palace, which is located in the country's capital city, Vienna. The Palace and Gardens of Schönbrunn is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, noted as a remarkable Baroque ensemble. It served as the residence of the powerful Habsburg monarchs from the 18th century until the creation of the Austrian Republic. It is also where the world's oldest zoo is. The card was sent by Rafal from Germany who was on vacation in Vienna. Thanks Rafal!
