Stephansdom in Vienna
The 'Stephansdom' got its name from the Saint Stephanus, honoured as the first Christan martyr. The Viennese lovingly refer to the Stephansdom in Vienna’s First District as 'Steffl'. This most important example of gothic architecture is 107 meters long, 34 meters wide and 136 meters high. Such measurements are an obvious indication that a walk in and around Vienna's Stephansdom will reveal a number of things to discover.
