After big city life in Vienna on our way to Czech Republic we took one day break in cosy Linz which was European Capital of Culture in 2009. Local metropoly located on the both sides of Danube river and between hills offers not only beautiful sights but also gives the possibility to visit very modern museums.
Here is what we discovered in Linz:
Rooftops of Linz. You cannot discover it from the ground, but once you enter the museum you will experience conceptual exhibition of various international artists whose works consist of the same element – water. After visiting the interions you climb up the the amazing rooftops. The circuit with its walkways, bridges and stairs, the various art spaces, attics, and the vast roof landscape high above Linz forms the atmospherically charged backdrop for this extraordinary art project.
Called the museum of the future. Itnteractive exhibition helps to understand modern technologies; we’ve tried VR glasses, took our first photo in 3D and discovered the possibility of laser printing. In the screening room we’ve seen Deep Space 8K experience. On 16 x 9 meters of wall and another 16 x 9 meters of floor projection, laser tracking and 3D animations the images are projected in 8K resolution and raised to a new, until these days unprecedented level.
Horse railway between Linz and České Budějovice which was built in the 30. of XIX century and was the first this type road on the European continent. It was used to transport salt from Austrian Salzkammergut to Czech Republic. Our local guide Bogdan took us for two hours walk on the suburbs of Linz where we could discover the yellow signs informing about the former road.
Our next stop was Český Krumlov where we stayed for longer and enjoyed beside sightseeing plans last days of rafting season on the Vltava river.
