Passau, Germany 2012

Dom St. Stephan (St. Stephan's Cathedral) is a Baroque church.  It is the seat of the Catholic Bishop of Passau.  Since 730 there have been many churches on this site; this one was built in 1668-1693 after a fire in 1662 destroyed its predecessor.  On the square in front of the cathedral, known as "Domplatz", is a statue of Maximilian I, King of Bavaria (1806 until his death in 1826).
