Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, August 2019

Museum mania in Vienna! :) This trip was during our birthdays in 2019. So I got a Vienna card and enjoyed all the museum at the fullest! The art history museum has the famous “Tower of babel”. In “Royal Museum of Fine Arts Belgium” you see a variety of it. Then you see “David and Goliath” from Caravaggio again! The brother of it is in Galleria Borghese in Rome.

For me, the most exciting part was seeing Velazquez‘ pieces. My dearest “Infanta Margarita”. I have a great sympathy for this girl since the day I saw her in “Las Meninas” of Velazquez in Prado Museum.

Another surprise is seeing one of the “Babylon” lions here. The famous Ishtar Gate exhibited in Pergamon Museum Berlin, and these lions were on the towers along the way.
