Last few days to discover the Austrian Riveria

This weekend is the last chance to visit the 'Vienna discovers the sea' exhibition being held at the Wien Museum in Karlsplatz before it closes on Sunday.

The exhibit looks at the "Austrian Riviera" destination that had been popular with the Viennese in the era of the Habsburg Empire towards the end of the 19th century.

The tourist hotspot became popular after the Südbahn railway opened up and made it quick and easy to get from the capital to the shores of the upper Adriati and towns such as Abbayia, Trieste and Grado.

A look at transport developments are included in the exhibit in Karlsplatz as well as advances in medicines in Abbazia that helped it to become a popular spa town.

Other objects on show include artworks from Egon Schiele and Rudolf von Alt as well as photographs of the Dalmatian coast and items from hotels and tourist agencies from the era between 1890 and 1914.

The exhibit has been running from 14 November 2013 and is set to close on 30 March 2014.
