Places to visit in Vienna. Languages: ru, he, en

The square in front of the central cathedral of Vienna bears the name of sv. Stephen, like the cathedral itself. In fact, the cathedral and the square were inside the city walls only from the beginning of the 13th century. Until that time, the main churches of the city was the church of St.. Petra, a complex of buildings on Am Hof and the church of Rupert. Gradually, with the development of the city, buildings began to appear around the cathedral, and even before the beginning of the 18th century a cemetery and a cemetery chapel of St. Magdalen. At the end of the 19th century, the entire area was reorganized and connected to the neighboring Stock am Aizen. In 1973, during the construction of the metro, the already proven new center of the old city cheered the crowns with an interesting find. Underground chapel of St. Virgil, which was associated with the Chapel of the Magdalen. Today, a mosaic showing the outlines of the Virgil Chapel is laid out on the square.

From Stephansplatz to Albertina and surroundings. My trip in Vienna of Sep 25, 2018.

From Stephansplatz across the ancient Karntrashtrasse to the Albertina Gallery. In Albertina, there was an exhibition of Monet, when the works of this artist were brought from different museums of the world and exhibited together, representing the same places at different times of the year or at different times of the day. And the walk on the square of the old market ended, with the funny story of Mark Twain. Translated with Google Translate
