Reviews about Parlament

薄雾如纱

5/5
Reviewed on 20 Oct 2017

The Vienna Parliament Building, known as the "most beautiful parliament building in Europe" was built in 1874. It is said that the ancient Greek architectural style was used to express the idea of people's participation in national management. Today it still plays a role as a symbol of national politics and power, where the Austrian Parliament meets. It is usually open to the public. Some activities were not open when they went, so they could not enter, but the fountain sculpture in front of the door made up for the regret. The fountain sculpture of 4 meters high - "front is left-handed sceptre, right-handed holding the victory of Athena statue, the goddess of peace and harmony, gentle lines, full of tender human nature; the four groups of figures beside the base symbolize the four major rivers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire - "Danube, Rhine, Elbe and Moldova. The sculpture is smooth and quiet, which perfectly reflects the submission of the four rivers. The whole sculpture gives people a sense of harmony, symmetry, tranquility, delicacy and elegance.
