Belvedere Palace
Austria, Vienna

The Belvedere consists of two magnificent Baroque mansions built in the early 18th century. The buildings are opposite each other, on a slope above Vienna, and this provides a beautiful view of the city. This is the most beautiful palace complex in Vienna, built by Prince Eugene of Savoy, the famous general who saved Vienna from the expansion of the Ottoman Empire. The museums of the two palaces house some of the most famous art galleries in Vienna, presenting an excellent example of Austrian painting, starting from the Middle Ages and ending with our days. Expositions include an unrivaled collection of paintings by Klimt, as well as the famous works of Schiele and Kokoschka, Renoir and Monet. Works of the Middle Ages and Baroque style are presented in the lower palace, where many rooms have been preserved in their original form.
