Vienna - paulgleiser

Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathedral) forms the spiritual heart of Vienna. A church dedicated to the martyr St. Stephen has stood on this site since 1147. The cathedral in its present form dates to 1359. Excavation to improve the church's heating system discovered graves dating to the 4th century, suggesting the the first church on the site was built on a Roman cemetery. The 450 ft. south tower dominates the Viennese skyline. The matching north tower was started but was quickly deemed economically unfeasible and was then stopped at 65 feet.
