17/43.- Vienna, Parlament


This building is Austria’s Parliament. The lower house of Austria --the National Council, whose members are elected by popular vote-- and the upper house --the Federal Council, whose members are chosen by the states-- sit here. The building is on Dr Karl Renner’s Avenue, Renners was Austria’s first Chancellor at the establishment of the republic in 1918, and its president from 1945 to 1950 after the re-establishment of the democratic republic.

The building was constructed from 1873 to 1883 by T. Hansen, he’s also the author of the Pallas Athenea Fountain that you can see in front of the construction.

We’ll now relax for a while at the Volksgarten (public park) that sits on the other side of the Dr k. Renner avenue ...
