The massive St. Stephen's Cathedral is the Gothic needle around which Vienna spins. In the last days of the war, the original timbered Gothic rooftop went up in flames. Shortly after the war — with a financial outpouring of civic pride — the roof was rebuilt in its original colorful splendor. The centerpiece of this cathedral dedicated to St. Stephen is a painting depicting the stoning of the early Christian martyr himself. Below it all is a self-portrait of a self-assured artist proud of his creation.
