Vienna

Travelling to Vienna from Budapest, I have to admit to a feeling of disappointment. While appreciating the depth of culture that Vienna has, the city gave me an uneasy feeling that it had shrugged off its annexation by, and collaboration with, the Nazis during World War Two, and simply ploughed on with its own bourgeois development. Maybe I was missing something, but I wouldn't hurry back.

The Zentralfriedhof cemetery – one of the largest in the world – is well worth a visit though. Set on the outskirts of the city, it is remarkable not just for its vast size but for the great variety of graves it contains.
