The Baroque exterior of Peterskirche conceals architectural treasures inside. The interior of this Roman Catholic church features exquisite golden stucco, pews adorned with cherubic heads, and striking gold and silver statues. Built between 1701 and 1733, the church's ornate construction includes the work of many artists. Once inside, notice the frescoes in the turreted dome. Around the dome, examine depictions of the four evangelists and four fathers of the church. Enjoy the detailing on the gilded ornate pulpit and the golden representation of the Holy Trinity above.

Close by the column in the center of vienna, another nice church both from outside but as well from inside. Did not have a lot of time but when in the center worth a visit more »
Beautiful church in the middle of the city. Its architecture integrates perfectly in the scenery. You can even miss it because it looks just like the other nice buildings around it.
As you walk along the main street, this small church located in a side street will peek at you with a look you cannot ignore. The church is designed in the baroque style of art. Highly ornate and clear details of artwork from the wood works to the sculpture and architecture is evident all over the place. I can only gaze with wonder at the church which I happen to stumble upon in my early morning walk. Place is still quiet with no one around which I recommend people to visit during this time of the day. Spend a few minutes of prayer and quiet contemplation before you go on your way.
