A NOTHER famous Danube church is situated at Regensburg. Its foundation

goes back to the ninth century and it is still essentially a medieval building which, in the baroque period, was extensively reconstructed.

The medieval has been delicately and lightly overlaid with decoration as jubilant as it is rich and the effect of the interior remains harmonious; the plain and sturdy nave pillars

contrasting strongly with stucco ornament and frescoes and with a stupendously grand high altar.

The position of the church, set within the little town of clustering square towers and overlooking the deep, quiet flowing river, is not so spectacular as that of Melk, nevertheless it gives the building great charm and majesty.
