Seavas Wien! Vienna Travel Tour 2

Alright I am back to the normal blogging season, more or less. Right,let’s get back to the travel post. The second day, back to the Stephenson Dom! The lighting is better than the first day around, and I am allowed to go in, compared with yesterday.

The front fascia

The pulpit, with the sculptures of Saints Gregory, Jerome, and Augustine. Very nice craving.

The closer look at the altar. Quite spacious.

More info can be found at the wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Stephen%27s_Cathedral,_Vienna

After the visit in Stephenson dom, I walked towards The Peterskirche (St. Peter's Church), which in my opinion, is the gem of Vienna. A must visit!

The exterior of the nice baroque church.

Once I stepped into the main entrance, I was totally mesmerised by the decoration. Every single inches of the interior is so immaculately crafted and decorated.

The cupola on the ceiling.

I literally stand there for 20mins just to admire the splendid view. Oh it is just so wonderful.

It was noon by the time I came out from the church, so I looked for famous places to dine/have tea…

Modern vs Classics. Snapped this while outside of the church

I just can’t resist the temptations of taking the photographs of Hofburg Palace while on my way to the tea room, so I took a re-route just to take some photographs. The weather was once again hazy, cloudy and looks quite gloomy.

Me with the Hofburg palace

And while I strolled around the palace area, I saw this::: A man with classical dressing! Well, he is the person who will push out all the classical music concerts for you. Quite expensive to be honest as I have spoken to one of them, 25pounds after student discount! Damn.

My first trial of pan shooting using my new G10.

So where is this tea room that I am looking for? Hint: World famous pastry with royal endorsement came form this shop.. Come back soon for a tasty treat!
