Vienna – Urania / Uniqa Tower

Vienna – Urania / Uniqa Tower

An impression from the Austrian capital Vienna.

The photo was taken at blue hour and shows a view from Stubenring / Franz-Josefs-Kai to the Vienna Urania building.
The Vienna Urania was founded in 1897 as an association (based on the model of the Berlin Urania); in 1910, after some provisional solutions, the own association building with attached observatory could finally be opened.

In the background, on the other side of the Donaukanal, rises the Uniqa Tower (opened in 2005), headquarters of the insurance company of the same name.
