Every tourist to Vienna - Catholics and non-Catholics alike, should tread the way to Stephansdom.
Stephansdom is the episcopal seat of the Archdiocese of Vienna, the consecration of which dates back to 1147.
Its Romanesque and Gothic architectural style resonates the solemn exquisiteness of fervent Austrian belief.
The cathedral is unparalleled in its religious arts and sculptures, each of which can be considered a masterpiece.
All I can say is that Stephansdom may be far from the taste of heaven, but a mortal glorification of Omnipotence that is noble in sanctity.
