Kölner Dom: Gothic and beautiful

Certainly there is mystery in Gothic but there are more things to comprehend in so much beauty. The Kölner Dom is inarguably a work of great art. It took centuries to complete it and more centuries to keep it intact. The worst wars in history has passed but it remains standing.

Shiny skyscrapers are beautiful too but I prefer old things with character and a story. The Kölner Dom is nothing like the tall neon light signs in Manhattan or the glistening Marina Bay Sands hotel. The cathedral is like an old book. It has a dark facade that feels reserved and unwelcoming but everything inside is nothing like how it seems.

Location: Kölner Dom, Köln, Germany
