Another wonderful example of the baroq style that is found everywhere in St. Pölten. I call this house the Libro-house, because it containes a big book, paper and Music-store called Libro. (special shopping tip!!)
This is the inside of the Franziskanerkirche.
You can find there a very famous sculpture - the black madonna.
These black madonna-sculptures are very special and rare. Not many of them exist in the whole world.
Our city hall is 500 years old, but has been renovated several times. The inside is brand new, but on the outside on the corner you can find some pieces of wall that were kept in their former "outfit". If you get the chance to have a look inside the police-office, you can see how the inside looked in former times. Really beautiful!
The Dom, our main church, isn't very exciting from the outside. But if you take the time to have a look inside, you can admire lovely paintings, golden ornaments and baroq style architecture.
This picture was taken inside the little chapel of the Englische Fräulein-school. The sculpture is very famous, because thesaw in it's hands is made of pure gold...
School of Englische Fräulein
This private school is said to have the most beautiful braoq front in whole Europe. Inside there is little chapel that you should absolutely visit. It's worth it!
This church is - to me - the most beautiful in St. Pölten. The outside and the inside are breath-taking.
St. Pölten's only university is the one for religion. Many young men start their theological career here (like it or not...)
A nice little place in the City Center with lovely baroq houses around and this monument in the middle. It's dedicated to the victims of the "black death" in midage.
Jacob Prandtauer was the most famous architect in the baroq period - and he lived in St. Pölten. This is the house he owned. He designed it himself as well.
sight seeing in town centre
Sankt Pölten is famous for it's buildings from the baroq period. Most famous are the City Hall (picture), the School "Englische Fräulein" (most beautiful baroq building in Europe) and many more...
Synagoge (jewish church)
This has been a jewish church in fromer times, but nowadays it's used for concerts and exhibitions. You have to take a look inside: it's a wonderful atmosphere!
This is a very special building in the city center. Dishes are decorating the front. It looks very nice!
