Rubens at the Kunst Historisches Museum, Vienna

At the center of Maria Theresa Plaza in Vienna is the Kunst Historisches Museum, which collects some of the most fascinating toys of medieval kings, Greek and Roman antiquities, Renaissance art, and a snobbish cafe where one has to wait in line just to get a table and drink a cup of coffee.

It is often referred to as the History of Fine Arts Museum. Although it houses some of the finest paintings of Raphael, Rubens and Peter the Elder to name a few, and perhaps serves fine Viennese coffee (I didn't get to taste it there), the translation should be National History Museum.

Hope your day is going well.
