Double-headed eagle mosaic

Stephansdom 1

This is another section of Stephansdom's roof. You can see how the city has grown up next to the cathedral. This photo was taken a block away from Stephansdom -- the buildings on the left and right are not part of the cathedral, but rather offices and shops that line this side street. The double-headed eagle depicted in the mosaic is the symbol of the Hapsburg dynasty.
