Easter in Austria

This year, the Orthodox Easter was a week after the Catholic one so instead of staying at home, we decided to have a family trip in Austria.

We had 3 nights to spend in different cities and chose Graz, Klagenfurt and Salzburg. I got some really great tips from my colleagues at work about what to see and after a Google search we made a pretty good itinerary.

Below you will find a couple of photos I took during our stay:

IMG_5685 This is Velden at Wörthersee which is a market town in the Villach District part of Carinthia. It is situated at the western shore of the lake and it is one of the most popular holiday resorts. You’ll see some very nice cars and boats and the village is extremely clean and beautiful. Perfect for a holiday!
