Walking alone in Vienna

Do you enjoy discovering new places on your own? Before I moved to Vienna lonely walks were something rather unusual for me and to be honest I hadn’t seen the point in hanging around the city with noone I could talk to or just to share the moment with.

At the begining of my one year stay in Vienna, when I was new in town and hardly knew someone, sometimes walking alone was the only opportunity to discover some new places, sights and all the attractions that the city offers itself.

I admit first time when I went for a lonely walk I felt rather awkward, but then I realised there are others like me hanging around with camera, sitting alone in cafe or reading a book in a park. Walking alone in Vienna had became something natural for me and soon I learned to like it.

When I was walking on my own I payed more attention to details and soaked up the atmosphere of Vienna. I could do what I want and go everywhere. The public transport was perfect and, what’s the most important, I felt safe and comfortable in this city.

Everything in Vienna 1st district Innere Stadt was so fabulous: Hofburg, Stephansplatz, Graben, Kohlmarkt, Kärntner Straße, Albertina and all those squares and sights hidden in the labyrinth of narrow streets. Everytime I discovered something new: charming small church, hidden passage, interesting architecture detail, tiny little café, cute shop window and so on.

I can’t get enough of Vienna. I don’t live here anymore but everytime I go for a weekend there I visit my favourite places and still discover something new because even whole year is not enough to know all the ins and outs. Exploring this wonderful city is a kind of neverending story.

  • Ewa, umawiamy się kiedyś na photowalk? 😀

    • Jasne! W marcu na pewno wybiorę się do Wiednia, bo już się zdążyłam stęsknić 🙂

      • W połowie marca jadę do Polski 😀 Znając życie to pewnie się miniemy 🙂

        • Właśnie tak też celowałam w środek miesiąca, jeszcze przed Wielkanocą, żeby załapać się na jarmarki, ale to dopiero takie luźne plany… Pewnie jak zawsze wyjdzie spontanicznie 🙂
