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.
