"Day 7 we went to Eisenstadt first and saw Haydn's house. We also visited the Haydnsaal (concert hall) in the Esterhazy Palace. What a beautiful space! Libor has performed there several times. Alice went onstage and sang a little to demonstrate the acoustics. Wow. Then we went back to Vienna, where we split into a few groups. A few of us toured the Opera House, others went to the Albertina to see an exhibit entitled From Monet Through Picasso, and others went to Schonbrunn Palace. Some of us walked over to the Bird Garden to see a butterfly exhibit but stopped for lunch first and didn't make it to the butterflies before they closed - but we had a great lunch! We walked through the grounds of the Hofburg Palace and to the Volkesgarten, then back to the Opera House and our bus pick-up spot and back to Bratislava. Another great day!"
