Prater Park
Austria, Vienna

Vienna's most famous park is located northeast of the city center, across the Danube Canal, along the Praterstrasse. In 1766, to the disappointment and annoyance of the aristocracy, Emperor Joseph II opened these vast park estates of the imperial family to all interested public. And since then, Prater has remained a public park, attractive for its famous boulevard, whose length exceeds 4 km; sports facilities - there is a golf course, a stadium, a hippodrome and a swimming pool; Wurstelprater planetarium and fairground (sausage Prater). A miniature railway is laid in the park, its main stop is the Riesenrad ferris wheel, 60 meters high, built in 1897 for the Vienna World Exhibition. The wheel moves slowly and majestically (it makes a full revolution in 20 minutes), and the view from its wagons is magnificent.
