Josephinum

Interesting
Founded by Emperor Joseph II in the late 18C, the former Academy of Surgery and Medicine is home to a museum and a history of medicine research and learning centre. The centre might be rather insignificant, were it not for the remarkable collection of "anatomical preparations" commissioned by Josef II for the students. Brace yourself: the unflinching realism makes it surprisingly disquieting to look at the eerily beautiful wax models.
