  • What a beauty! Very different from what you will see around Europe. It has a more earthground vibe. Quick visit still worth it!  more »
  • Beautiful looking Cathedral from the outside. Unique sight in the city. Pretty big on the inside with lots of history  more »
  • It was nice to read a bit of history about the building at the entrance. A lot of the surrounding buildings were destroyed in the second world war but the cathedral itself was mostly spared luckily. Of course many of the stained glass windows were destroyed, but the new ones are quite interesting and give it a more modern feel.
  • Nice cathedral and relaxing surrounding area full of nice restaurants and bars.
