Last pictures of Vienna

For the sake of the record, here are the remainder of the photos I took in Vienna. Horse drawn carriages are a common sight, mainly for tourists. One here is even painted pink for the more romantically inclined!

Here is the church of St. Peter, a fine example of high baroque art. Many of the churches are rather neglected with their side altars stripped. The baroque seems to embarrass Austria's rather liberal Catholic church.

A square where a flea market is held on Friday: I bought some bottles of beer here.

The Knights of Malta Church, with the High Altar ad orientem. Like the Oratory another bastion of Catholic Orthodoxy!
