A handsome bund runs along the river frontage of the three foreign settlements, and the public buildings, especially in the British settlement, are large and fine.
Units can be linked together to create a larger bund if required.
On the 2nd of August the emperor Francis Joseph proposed to King William, during a meeting The Frat Gastein, to lay before an assembly of the German stentag princes a scheme for the reconstitution of the Bund.
In any reform of the Bund, it ran, Prussia, equally with Austria, must have the right of vetoing war; she must be admitted, in the matter of the presidency, to absolute equality with Austria; and, finally, she will yield no tittle of her rights save to a parliament representing the whole German nation.
This treaty most of the small states refused to sign, and they were supported in their objections by Austria, which loudly complained that Prussia had given to a foreign power what she had denied to a sister state of the Bund.
