Google Doodle for Austria National Day 2015

Oct 26, 2015

Austria National Day 2015

Today marks the first day of Austria's complete independence as a sovereign state.  Much of Austria's celebrations will take place in Vienna, including a celebration at Heldenplatz, the most prominent square in the city center, and free admission at federal museums. If you're not in the country, you can explore The Austrian Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien) on Google Cultural Institute.

Another one of the long-held traditions of Austria includes equestrian exercises performed by world-famous white Lipizzaner stallions. These horses are trained in Vienna to perform highly technical drills that demonstrate the precise movements required in ancient battlefield maneuvers. 

This tradition is what we’re celebrating in the Doodle today, created by Doodler Robinson Wood. The horse and rider in this doodle are performing a courbette (a standing jump) which is one of the most difficult movements, and demands intense focus and partnership between horse and rider.
