Opposite Maria Teresia Square is the vast Heroes Square, in the center of which stands the bronze statue of Grand Duke Carl. Grand Duke Carl was the emperor, marshal and military theorist of the Austrian Empire. At the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century, he was active in the European battlefield as the military commander of Austria. He was also a famous anti-French general who frustrated Napoleon I for the first time. I saw Carl holding up his flag, jumping horse, galloping, hiring the battlefield bravely. To the southeast of the square is the Palace of New Hofburg, the latest part of the Palace of New Hofburg. The Renaissance-style Neo-Hofburg Palace is the representative of Neo-classicism in the Hofburg Palace. On March 15, 1938, Hitler announced the merger of Germany and Austria on the balcony of the New Hofburg Palace and the beginning of Nazi rule over Austria. Today's New Hofburg Palace has become a museum.
Vienna's Hero Square, on the one hand, is the Hoffburg Palace, on the other hand, the Circle Avenue. You can see the city hall, the Capitol Building, some famous buildings on the Circle Road. It is a good place for people to relax. There are many carriages on the square for visitors to ride.
Heroes Square, witnessing thousands of years of changes in the city, is now experiencing the test of refugee flows. Down the Danube River from north to south, the landmark is the West Bank Palace of Buda and the East Coast Parliament Building, as well as four chain bridges rebuilt after World War II. Prices are much lower here. Apart from the core urban areas, many places are showing signs of dilapidation. There is a long way to go to revitalize the strong wind. The view of the riverbank on the walls of the Royal Palace is beautiful at night.
The reason why Viana Hero Square is called Hero Square is that there are two statues of Austrian heroes on the square. One is Prince Eugene (who built the Palace of Beauty, surrounded Vienna by the Ottoman Empire for the second time, and succeeded to the Spanish throne in fighting with France repeatedly) is a well-known hero, and the other is Grand Duke Carl (who defeated Napoleon in a battle). God needs to shape heroes. Heroes Square is very large, and the surrounding buildings are circular. I have a familiar architectural style here, because it is similar to the auxiliary building of Shanghai Exhibition Hall (formerly known as Sino-Soviet Friendship Building). But here is a huge scale, ordinary wide-angle lens can not take panoramic view, many exquisite sculptures on the outside wall, so we are very interested in exploring the interior of the building. As a result, we bought a ticket for the classical musical instrument exhibition and went to see the interior sculpture of the house, chandeliers, door handles and so on. The musical instrument can only see the pipa in the advertisement.
Several famous scenic spots in the centre of Vienna are very concentrated and can be visited on foot. All the way from Vienna City Hall and Parliament Building to Maria Teresia Square that day, across the road is Hero Square. Heroes Square is the outer square of the Hofburg Palace. The square is very large and the building is circular. It is too big to see at once. It needs to be cut into several parts to watch. In front of the square is a large green lawn. The most striking symbol of the square is the statue of the Austrian hero riding a horse.
Hero Square, my favorite square so far, has no other decoration except the central sculpture group and two half-arc corridors on the North side. It has a broad vision. I feel standing on the top of the mountain surrounded by gods. A place full of breath and feeling
Just across from Maria Teresa Square is Heroes Square. The City Hall of Vienna, the Capitol Building and the Royal Equestrian Academy are all very close. On the square outside the Royal Palace of Hofburg, the statue of Joseph II stands on the square overlooking the crowd.
