St. Ansgars Church is a Roman Catholic church built on the grounds of the former chapel of the Austrian Embassy that dates back to the 1740’s. The present day church itself was founded in 1840 and it was consecrated in 1842. The church was being raised to the status of a Cathedral in 1941.
The interiors of the church take you back to a whole different time with rich paintings, sculptures and a variety of historic items that add their charm to the place. In a way, the architecture resembles that of a Roman Basilica. You are greeted with 5 statues that are embedded in the entrance wall to make way to a dome-shaped section that forms the main altarpiece. The rustic circular chandeliers, touches of blue bordering the celling and the gorgeous stained windows- all add to the extravagance of the place. If you love art, a visit here is sure to leave you speechless!
