Austria: "Winter Palais" of Prince Eugen of Savoy reopen for Public

People visit the state apartments of the noble "Winter Palais" of Prince Eugen of Savoy as it reopens its door to the public after only two month of renovation in Vienna, Austria. Originally built as a lavish stately residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy, then acquired in the eighteenth century by Empress Maria Theresa before being used for the Court Treasury and later as the Ministry of Finance, this Baroque jewel in downtown Vienna has finally been restored to a centre of art and culture.
