Belvedere Park

Local name: Schlosspark Belvedere

Belvedere Palace in Vienna is the palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy. The palace and park complex includes the Lower Belvedere and Upper Belvedere, as well as a French-style garden with numerous statues, which is the oldest of the entire complex. The Upper Belvedere was representative, while the Lower Belvedere was the prince's summer residence.

From 1953, the Upper Belvedere houses the Gallery of 19th and 20th century Austrian Art. It is here that the world's largest collection of Gustaw Klimt's works is located, including the most famous works: Kiss and Judith. The gallery also exhibits paintings by such artists as Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka and Hans Makart.

The Lower Belvedere is the seat of the Austrian Baroque Museum, where you can admire, among others works of Johann Michael Rottmayr, Daniel Gran and Paul Troger. The former Orangery houses a department of Medieval Art, where late Gothic art is presented, including elaborate altars from the 15th century.
