The scale and beauty of the main church at St. Florian Monastery cannot be over emphasized. While not as over the top as Melk Monastery in terms of gold leaf cladding or florid paintings, this cathedral-scale basilica is a very well-executed and harmonious example of...More

This church and seminary occupy a large site containing many stunning and ornate buildings all on a large scale. The main church in particular is incredibly ornate and richly decorated, the seminary monumental, even the small chapel to out Lady is beautifully atmospheric and peaceful.
