A forced tour of coffee and cake shops with the odd diversion to gape at some more grandeur. You’ll have spotted that Barbara was in Art Noveaux baths not Baroque yesterday.

The wealth to create such a place boggles the imagination. Somehow it all fits though and isn’t OTT. Must keep the equivalent of Cadw or English Heritage busy. Even the Hapsburg place (or one of them) is getting a makeover. They all seem open so can’t have any Historic Scotland gurus advising on making life difficult for visitors.

The Botanic Gardens probably mean a lot to botanists. Weeds and welcome shade to me. Not even statues they came in abundance in the next door Belvedere park grounds.

Been a lovely two days exploring and getting lost with Mrs Google Maps which makes it all interesting. Tomorrow into Slovakia and Brastislava.
