Hide the sights! The lesser-known Palace of Justice
Vienna Justice Palace is hidden on the left side of the Austrian Parliament Building, behind the Vienna Museum of Natural History, but because its faade is covered by several trees, it is not even if it is specifically sought after. Its hard to find where it is going through thousands of times on the Ringstrasse.
Vienna The Palace of Justice is now the main office of the Austrian Supreme Court, the Vienna State High Court, the Vienna State Supreme Prosecutor's Office, and the Vienna State Civil Court. But even many people in Vienna don't know that it is actually an attraction that is open to the public, and no tickets are charged. As long as they go through the security check at the entrance, they can enter. The
Vienna Justice Palace, like the other buildings on the Ringstrasse in Vienna's Ringstrasse, was built in the era of Emperor Franz Joseph and designed by the Vienna architect Alexander Wielemans, so the interior of the building is symbolized by the successors of the Roman Empire. Double-headed eagle logo. Since its completion, the Vienna Palace of Justice has been the judicial center of Austria for more than 130 years.
The lobby on the first floor has a symmetrical layout, tall columns and beautiful sculptures, gorgeous and solemn. The roof is a semi-elliptical glass, and the sun shines directly through the glass into the hall. It is rare that such a European-style attraction (more precisely, it should be a location) has no tourists and is a paradise for photographers.
High sitting in the middle, holding a gold-plated sword in one hand and one hand on the code is the ancient Roman goddess Justitia, symbolizing fairness and justice. It is known as the most beautiful statue of justice in the world, and the face is serious, and Will is not angry. On top of the semi-circular god, a delicate red balance scale is set, indicating that the court trial is flat and unbiased.
Take the central staircase and look around. The Palace of Justice is a symmetrical building centered on the dome. The doors and windows are large and small, and they are all semi-circular arches. The style inherits the cloak of ancient Roman architecture.
When shooting, occasionally the staff inside passed through the corridor and saw that we would smile and nod. However, in order to protect the long-term nature of this position, it is recommended that friends who are going to shoot keep quiet and low-key. After all, it is the Supreme Court, not a tourist attraction.
The top floor of the Palace of Justice is the cafe Justiz-Caf. I heard that it overlooks the famous buildings such as the Parliament, the City Hall, and the inner city of Vienna. If you are interested, you can go and have a look.
