Stayed in Wien
I had a busy day exploring Wien, visiting numerous beautiful and ornate churches and walking many miles through the Viennese streets.
Among the places visited were a beautiful Russian Orthodox Cathedral, the huge Karl’s Church, an Anglican Church and the impressive Cathedral of Saint Stephen, where I went up the North Tower for an impressive view of the city.
I also visited the Weltliche Schatzkammer [“Worldly Treasure Room”] where they have on display many important paintings and relics, including the Heilige Lanze [“Holy Lance”], also known as the Spear of Destiny.
That evening I joined a service at the church dedicated to Saint Roch of Montpellier, who is a patron saint of pilgrims.
