    Perspective

    It's all in the mind

    Sometimes it helps when u see things from a different angle.

    The gift of sight is one of the miracles of life.
    Use it wisely :-)

    Church of St Charles Borromeo is one of the best example of Baroque in Vienna. Located near Kralplatz.
    Its 236 feet domw looks very impressive and you could see it from far.

    Karlskirche

    Emperor Charles VI commissioned this church because of a vow taken during a plague epidemic. It was built by the eminent baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach and was finished in 1739.

    St Charles

    This must be St Charles, the protector of plague. You can offer prayers here, buy a candle for 50 sen to 1 euro and lit it, and say a short prayer.

    Karlskirche~St Charles Church~ pond and sculpture

    by Audrey118 Updated Jul 2, 2003

    A beautiful pond is in front of the church - and on a good day, you can see the reflection of the stately looking church over the simmering water. Also there is a sculpture by Henry More
