  Upper Belvedere
by Audrey118

A view of the Upper Belvedere from the high gate. Prince Eugen used the Upper Belvedere to entertain guests and the Lower Belevedere was his summer home. The former is simply to big to be a home!!!

After his death, the baroque palace became part of the House of Habsburg possession.
And during early 1900s, the heir to the Austrian throne F Ferdinand and his wife lived there. During a trip to Sarajevo he was assinated and it is then Austria launch a war against Serbia and that is how WWI started.

Address: the baroque castle of Prinz Eugen
