When Evening falls in Vienna

Leaving the Franciscan Church

Kleines Café
and Sign Shop

The Cloister of
the Franciscan Order

Rounding the corner
in the quiet of the evening

The Portal
of the Franciscan Church,
with Saint Hieronymus

Approaching from Singerstrasse

This beautiful small square was created
at the beginning of the 17th century
through demolition of a building
in order to alleviate parking problems:
Worshippers of the Franciscan Church had complained
about a scarcity of parking spaces for their carriages.
We now find ourselves standing at a square
that is surrounded by buildings
that date back quite a few more years
than the square itself!
