Photo: Peterskirche Downtown Vienna Austria

Shops and tourists fill the street in downtown Vienna, Austria with the Peterskirche prominently standing at the end.

Many people roam the street in the downtown area of Vienna, Austria where there are banks, unique shops and cafes and at the end of the line stands the historic church known as the Peterskirche. The architecture that surrounds this part of downtown Vienna gives people an explicit look at some of the historic buildings that adorn Vienna.

The Peterskirche has a very long history behind it with the original church dating back to the Early Middle Ages. It was also surrounded by shops but was burnt to the ground in 1661. Promises were made by Leopold I to rebuild this church and the construction began in 1701 after Vienna was seized by the plague.

Being the first domed building in baroque Vienna, the interior is richly decorated with gold stucco, stunning frescoes, an amazing altar and statues that pronounce class and history. ... continue below the picture...
