Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church - Review
Vienna is the city of historical cathedrals and churches. They define the landscape and the culture of the city. Translated as the Greek Orthodox church, this is one of the most historic of the churches that populate Vienna. Built in the Byzantine Revival design, this cathedral has been the seat of Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Austria ever since 1963. As you look at the church from outside, you will be struck by its two-tone brickwork and gilded archways. There is also a well decorated sanctuary that finds a striking resemblance to Baroque church architecture that characterised Germany and Austria once. Do visit this church for a spiritual and artistic retreat.

Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Vienna Reviews
Was not open in their scheduled timetable twice. We loose a lot of time trying to visit and was not possible. Unacceptable.
The Greek Orthodox Church (Griechenkirche), also known as the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church is located in the innere Stradt on Fleischmarkt street. The church was built in 1787 by Theophil Edvard Hansen and is a rare example of a Byzantine style church found in Vienna. Here you can see an attractive red and gold striped (brick) exterior with classic arched windows. On the inside, there is an attractive narthex, featuring many columns, sloped ceiling and frescos. The church nave is heavily frescos, including some nice paintings, chandelier and an attractive iticonostasis in the front of the nave. Like many churches in the first district, the nave was in very good condition and the attendant on duty was happy for us to take pictures inside. Overall, we found the Griechenkirche a nice change of scenery from the mostly baroque and gothic style church scene in the first district. Looking very much more like church visits in Greece or Turkey, this is a pleasant surprise and interesting place to find and explore in the historic city centre.
Beautiful iconography art... has a special and different iconography school... once you enter the church you feel the eastern spirit...
Built in Neo-Byzantine style in 1850, the church is very interesting outside.
Beautiful little Orthodox church
