Vienna-ORF Long Night of Museums-part II

Second day of our weekend in Vienna was more relaxed. We started the day with the tea and fantastic Apfelstrudel at Café Hawelka.
The day was perfect for city walk.                            

                                Graben Strasse- Plague Pillar
 At Hofburg Passage- Maria Stransky "PetitPoint" shop with gorgeous embroidered jewelry and bags.
 On "to do" list were the museums that did not participate in the long night museums event.
 Taking photos is not allowed at Sisi museum and Imperial Apartments, but I couldn't resist recording that tiny waist (21 inches) Empress Elisabeth had had.
 Reconstructed gown Empress Elisabeth wore for coronation as Queen of Hungary.
This year Sisi Museum celebrates its 10th anniversary so there is a temporary exhibition: Silk – Lace – Ermine from Empress Elisabeth's wardrobe. There are displayed more than 20 original items of clothing, some of them for the first time. I know, this is most interesting part for seamstress, so here are few photos from catalog.
After "must taste" Sachertorte -at CaféMozart (I have a sweet tooth! :)
we went to Schloß Schönbrunn
Again no photos inside Palace but trust me it is incredible.
Two days weren't enough for all we had planned.There are a lot of museums, parks and interesting things on our list. 
So, Vienna, we will come again.
