Trip To Austria: St. Stephen’s Cathedral

St Stephens Ext 2

Our visit to St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna was the first time we experienced the interior of a European Cathedral. We were awestruck. It is hard to describe the magnitude of everything I sensed, including sacredness, the expression of culture, and weight of history. We have visited others since, and the experience is the same. Although I had read about the symbolism of cathedrals, I did not grasp their beauty (even the less ornate ones) until I had visited one. This is a selection of pictures we took during our visit to St. Stephens. I hope you enjoy.

    You must have been there during Lent. I was at St. Stephen’s once in the early ’80s. It was magnificent.

      It is magnificent! We were. We had the fortune of visiting several different cathedrals now but St. Stephen’s is special. Thank you
