Urban Oases

A different kind of city experience.

Firstly, the rural exodus.
The escape from endless expanses into a bustling jungle of concrete. The vibrancy of cities. Fast, loud, luminous, boisterous, animated, constantly in motion. Melting pots of different cultures and motors of creativity.

Then, the escape from the city.
The longing for tranquility & simplicity. The escape from steel and concrete. The chirruping of birds rather than the noise of the streets. Hectic life now abandoned in favor of a life spent between sunrise and sunset.

City. Country.
Black. White.
Either. Or.
But there are those hidden places where busy streets bump into green oases. Places where the day begins in total quiet, yet life continues well after the sun has set. Where the fox and hare bid each other a "Good night!", though might well share a final sip of fine wine "just for the road".

A majestic sight

It turns evening and the last people leave the grounds. The sky changes color, the lights of the city are turned on and, whilst the nighttime bustle commences all around, here suddenly, silence. The unique sight of the Gloriette and the palace park exclusively for you alone. An experience at this former summer residence of the imperial household that virtually no one knows.
