Beautiful St. Paul's Cathedral, the seat of the Archbishop of Melbourne, sits on one of the busiest corners in the city across from Flinder's Station. Built in 1891 with the spires added in 1926-32, ...
St Paul the Apostle is second only to Jesus in promoting the Christian faith. Without St Paul, Chistianity would be only a small Palestinian sect. It is fitting, therefore, that this Anglican Catedra...

Arriving at St. Paul's Cathedral in downtown Melbourne, just a newcomer is holding a wedding, we stand behind the crowd and watch it quietly for a while. This is the fourth time to meet the wedding on the road. For the first time in Guam, a private chapel. The second time was the shrine next to Asakusa Temple in Japan. The third time is Sri Lanka, a small village through the route. Listening to the new people reading the vows and firmly saying "I am willing", the eyes are a little moist. Good love, how wonderful.
Opposite the church is Flinders Street Station. This is another landmark in the heart of Melbourne and the most prosperous transportation hub. For a few days in a row, whenever there is passing, there is always a bustling crowd. From the station, it is the classic Melbourne hiking route. It is said to be hiking, in fact, it is to go shopping along the characteristic streets.
Melbourne's streets are very interesting, with all kinds of alleys and arcades intertwined, hiding the most famous cafes, restaurants and independent shops in Melbourne, with a variety of Italian coffee and food.
My favorite is the nearly 125-year-old Brock Arcade, which follows the arcade-style shopping style of the 19th century popular in the European fashion capitals of Milan, Paris, London, etc. Exquisite marble columns and mosaic tiles, vintage and gorgeous. If you have plenty of time, you can enjoy an authentic afternoon tea in the 100-year-old Hopeton Tea Room, which seems to have been contaminated with a few British aristocrats.

St. Paul's Cathedral is located at the intersection of Swanston Street and Flinders Street. Built in 1891, it is a famous building in the city of Melbourne. It is famous for its bluestone and fine wall lines. In 1932, the church added three more spires to make it look more magnificent. The church has stained glass windows, glazed tiles, wooden chairs and red vaulted skirts. There is also a huge organ, its brilliance and lustrous color blended with the red decoration of the church. There are several memorial statues stationed outside the church as well as a very beautiful small garden.
