Photo 1905 from .
This is a glorious cathedral in Vienna and throughout Austria. The first temple on this place was founded in 1137. Gothic church was built gradually in 13 – 15 centuries, and the north tower has remained unfinished.
Lesja Ukrainka during her stay in Vienna from 25 January (6 February) – 6 (18) March 1891 had going in to this cathedral. Impressions of this visit later formed the basis for sketch "Moment":
A "Moment" really inculcated by point in Stephans' Kirche, you, mother, guessed
– wrote she to her mother march 22 (April 4) 1905.
Lesja Ukrainka was not fan of Christian shrines, and this episode – single authentic fact visiting some church by her.
