EV Day #42 – Melk on the Danube


We are cruising on the Danube through Austria now. It is a beautiful stretch of the river.

Melk, Austria is the home of a huge baroque Benedictine Monastery, and a tour of it was on our schedule today. After seeing soooooo many lovely old buildings in the past 5 weeks, I’m kind of surprised that I continue to be awed, but I am.

It sits high on a hill, with an amazing view of the surrounding area.

Perhaps the most spectacular part of the Monastery was the library, the only room we saw where we were unable to take photographs. I could have spent hours photographing the old, frayed books. As it was, I was lining up the photos I would take in my mind’s eye…unbelievable.

This afternoon we continued cruising down the Danube. Stay tuned – I’ll add photos tomorrow, since I got a little crazy with photos today! Heeheehee!
