LAV-I - the City

I was delighted to hear almost a year ago, that the 2006 Les Anciens Meeting was to take place in Vienna. The event was dubbed LAV.

Vienna, metropolis, the k.u.k. capital. Its grandeur is to be seen at nearly every streetcorner in the centre. Especially the Secession and similar styles together with the museums makes a visit worthwhile.

This last picture is on Strozzigasse, around the corner of where we stayed. I started to feel a bit unheimlich when seeing this mosaic. It commemorates the battle of Vienna, called Türkensturm. The mosaic was probably put there in the 1960s, way before the very word would get a negative second connotation...
