The Cathedral, Wiener Neustadt by Christoph Sevcnikar
The Late-Romanesque Dom, consecrated in 1279 and cathedral from 1469 to 1785. The choir and transept, in Gothic style, are from the 14th century. In the late 15th century 12 statues of the Apostles were added in the apse, while the bust of Cardinal Melchior Klesl is attributed to Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
The hardest thing in the world is to simplify your life. It’s so easy to make it complex. What’s important is leading an examined life.

In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.

Death Cab for Cutie’s Transatlanticism played in the background of countless decade-old milestones around the world, especially the ones involving first kisses and so forth, and it’s no wonder. The album, and its epic title song in particular, played on an endless loop across popular culture — on movie soundtracks and in dramatic moments from such TV shows as Six Feet Under. The way singer Ben Gibbard channeled youthful confusion, vulnerability and sweetness mirrored universal fumbling feelings of growing up and facing down the complexities of love, heartbreak, long-distance yearning and budding nostalgia. From the first line of its first song (“So this is the new year / and I don’t feel any different”), Transatlanticism swims in uncertainty, as if its narrator isn’t even quite sure how feelings work yet.
