Vienna – Church/Cathedral…??

It’s time for my ‘Travel Lane’ post for the week!!! This was one of the first places me & my mom visited when arriving in Vienna! I can’t remember if it is a church or cathedral or anything… I can’t even remember the name of the church (I’m going to call it this for the remainder of the post!!)… It was closed that day, no visitors allowed… But it still left a memory branded in my – well, memory!! – that is forever impressive!!

This was the first sight that would quickly become my favourite city that I have ever visited abroad!! Vienna is just magical…. full of culture, art, yummy foods and gorgeous views!!

*** UPDATED *** I have to thank Lemonissimo for giving me a link to another site: This would be the Greek-Orthodox church!!! Thanks Lemonissimo!! 😀 ** – – – – – – – – –

Three very beautiful women!!! Seems so out of place here… hardly noticed by anyone… Silent – – – & artfully mysterious!!! 🙂 **
