Sightseeing in Sankt Polten - what to see. Complete travel guide

Sankt Poelten is a city located near Vienna. This is the oldest Austrian city, largest city in the federal state Lower Austria and the young capital of the administrative area. The city was founded on the site of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Hippolytus in 771. Sankt Poelten gained the official status of the city in 1159.
There’s no wonder why Sankt Poelten is known for its amazing broad squares, the concentration of cultural life and magnificent baroque buildings, because the majority of architectural structures have appeared around the time of the famous baroque architect Jakob Prandtauer moving to Sankt Poelten. He created today's architectural monuments of the city - the central building of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin and the Female Monastery of the Order of Carmelites.
The cultural heritage of Sankt Poelten is represented by the Town Hall Square with the Column of the Holy Trinity and the Franciscan church located next to city hall and decorated in the baroque style. It may be very interesting to visit the Im Hof museum located on Hessshtrasse, Shallaburg palace, Abbey Gertsogenburg and Museum of the episcopate Bischofshofen, the city’s cultural center with its Exhibition Hall, Festival Hall and a modern tower, Palace Pottenbrun with a collection of medieval goblets, Historical Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in a baroque palace Karmeliterhof Romano Gothic Cathedral House, Dinosaur Park and Nussdorf and park dinosaurs Traysmauer.
