Saturday, we did not have nearly the agenda that we'd had on Friday, but still managed to see quite a lot of the city.
We first wandered to Stephansdom, a huge, very old, very beautiful church. The exterior is daunting but still approachable, while the interior is enough to take anyone's breath away. We didn't do any formal tours, but I took plenty of pictures.
We wandered around, walking from Stephansplatz to Karlsplatz, taking pictures of many random buildings, eventually reaching a farmer's fair happening around the Hofburg Palace. So we sat, enjoyed, and took pictures.

I stand in front of a pretty building in the Hofburg (I believe it is now the National Library):
A building, most certainly part of the Hofburg:
A street on our way to somewhere:
We stand in front of the Federal Parliament building:
Later that night, we ventured to the Staatsoper (State Opera House), where we had obtained last-row (but non-obstructed view!) tickets for 20 Euros apiece to see Manon Lescaut. The opera house was beautiful, and unlike the Volksoper, it had English subtitles:
After the opera, we walked around the area and had some famous Wiener sachertorte and apfelstrudel. And took some more pictures.
All in all, a fantastic day.
