St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna
From behind, the cathedral is ashen black, as if it has survived a fire sometime in its long life, which started somewhere between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries. But it is only pollution which has corrupted its pure stone. On a rainy evening, this feature completes the haunting aura the church gives off.
This age-old cathedral, standing in all its glory, surviving through the ravages of centuries, could not escape the modern era. It is a reminder that despite being a medieval landmark, the St. Stephen’s cathedral today exists in a metropolis.
one day the sun will brush your face again, you’ll breathe in fresh air and you will be okay. i promise.
