Votrubakirche (or Saint Wenceslas Church) is a Baroque church in Vienna, Austria. It was designed by German-Bohemian architect, Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach and built in the early 18th century. The amazing facade, featuring two bell towers and carvings of saints, is expertly crafted and displays a unique combination of classicism and the rococo. Inside, the church is decorated with elaborate gold, colored marble and gilded stucco in the rococo style. The chapel, built in 1707, has several works of art, including a magnificent gilded altar attributed to Albrecht Protz. The stained-glass windows are some of the most impressive Baroque pieces in Vienna and adds much to the cathedral's grandeur.
