The Beautiful Cathedral in Passau

This is the St. Stephan's Cathedral, called as "Dom St. Stephan" in German located in Passau, a city in Bavaria, Germany. This is so far one of the most beautiful cathedral I visited in this country. It has a baroque architecture the seat of the Catholic Bishop of Passau.

It has the largest church organ outside of United States. It is also the largest cathedral organ in the world.

The image below was taken during my third visit to this city last summer 2010. This is such and amazing work of art! St. Stephan's Cathedral is truly stunning!

The cathedral's overall plan was made by Carlo Lurago, its interior decoration by Giovanni Battista Carlone, and its frescos by Carpoforo Tencalla.
