Melk Church is one of the world’s most famous (related to monks and nuns) places/locations, and its amazing buildings are laid out around seven (open spaces next to buildings). The mostwell-known/obvious part of this huge 325-meter-long complex is the west end and its twin-towered church rising above a half-circle terrace range. Sat (like a bird) on a rocky (rock sticking up from the ground) high above the town of Melk and (ignoring/not noticing/looking at) theDanube, the church contains many other great reasons to spend a few hours touring it: the graveof Saint Coloman of Stockerau; the remains of Austria’s first ruling family, the House ofBabenberg; the excellent 196-meter-long (related to kings, queens, emperors, etc.) Hallway/travel path with its portraits of Austria’s rulers, including one of the Empress Maria Theresa; and the(related to kings, queens, emperors, etc.) Rooms with their displays relating to the church’s history, along with statues and paintings.
