miss iggy at the austrian parliament



Euro Iggy is happy to share a few facts about the Austrian Parliament in Vienna:

- the Parliament is guarded by Pallas Athena, the goddess of strategic warfare and heroic endeavor
- the building was designed by Danish architect Theophil Hansen
- it was damaged during World War II and the restoration was completed in 1956
- it was only in 1919 that women were represented in the Austrian parliament. Currently, women are still underrepresented
- in 2008, Austria celebrated the 90th anniversary of the establishment of its Republic
