We arrive in what was a popular spa resort town set in a valley and we are greeted by this grand structure which was once a casino. Built in the 1860's in an Austrian barocco style with a long covered promenade which was home to various saloons which were frequented by the elite aristocracy of Vienna.
Sadly at some time there was a fire and the grand main hall was restored with little resemblance to the beauty that was destroyed.
Later due to economic crisis and lack of tourism the casino closed, part of the building was used as a museum now all that remains is a coffee shop on the promenade and it seems the main hall is used for some functions.
Work had been going on here but it seems to of faded away the grand façade has been restored and looks rather fresh along with the now bland restored main hall, the rest is looking a little worse for wear.
We were lucky enough to persuade a kind old gentleman to let us have a quick tour around, while showing us old photographs and sharing a bit of history about the town. He then let us do our thing and grab some photos.
