Poop bags for horses
In Vienna horses drawing carriages around the old inner city have individually designed poop bags attached. They are required by law in cities such as Vienna, NewYork and Dresden.?Apparently one of the reasons cars became popular in the early 1900's was the problem with horse poop, particularly in rapidly growing cities like New York. If this idea had been thought of then cars may not have become so popular so quickly.

A refreshing spray on a hot day in the city
Today we went on a day tour of Bratislava from Vienna and were surprised to see this water spray in the main square of the old town with many people going through to get a refreshing spray. We've only seen something similar at beaches.
