In addition to the palaces, in Vienna a large number of churches and cathedrals. Very interesting are the churches of Karlskirche, the church of St. Peter, the church of Am Steinhoff and the church of St. Augustine. But the center of religious life and the main Catholic cathedral of Austria is St. Stephen's Cathedral .
The church was rebuilt several times and now it is a huge cathedral in a tower with a height of 136 meters and the roof of the main building with a height of 60 meters, it makes an indelible impression.
You can climb to the south (high) tower and look at Vienna from a great height. St. Stephen's Cathedral was Austria's tallest building, it was illegal to build buildings above it. Of course, in the beginning it will be necessary to overcome 343 steps upward, which is difficult for many tourists. We recommend to think whether you can master or not.
In the catacombs under the temple are medieval burials. In the building itself is located the tomb of Eugene of Savoy and rest the representatives of the Habsburg family, including one emperor.
In the northern (small) tower is the most important bell of Austria, called Pummerin.
St. Stephen's Cathedral is the most significant tourist attraction in Austria, made in the Gothic style of architecture. Lovers of the style of the "dark Middle Ages" we strongly recommend to visit this place.
Among Europeans and Russians in particular, Vienna is associated with music, we immediately recall the Vienna Waltz, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss. Indeed, there are a lot of theaters in Vienna, the most famous of which are the Vienna State Opera, the Burgtheater (former Imperial Theater), the Vienna Concert House and the Raimund Theater. Separately it is necessary to say about the music museum "House of Music", part of which is interactive, we recommend that all fans of music and sound visit this place.
Of course, Vienna is not the only city in Austria and every region of the country has its own sights. The Carinthian region is famous for its lakes . There are also many interesting places for tourists here.
Miniimundus miniature park will show you more than 150 world sights at a scale of 1:25. Of course, half of them are Austrian, and many Russian tourists simply will not recognize them, but this does not spoil the general impression.
In the park, copies of famous ships float and drive real steam locomotives, only miniature ones, which makes it an excellent place to visit families with children. It's unlikely that your children will be inspired by copies of the palaces, but the trains will surely delight them. For you it will be an excellent opportunity to be photographed with dozens of attractions in one place.
In our article about Minimundus Park we collected a description of the most interesting miniatures , and also accompanied the article with three galleries of photos from the park , where you can see almost all the mock-ups that are in the park.
