Domkerk cathedral is notable enough to distinguish it from the above-mentioned religious sites of the city. The spire of this beautiful Gothic building is visible from all parts of the city. This spire is considered the highest one in the Netherlands. The construction of the cathedral started in the middle of the 13th century and lasted more than three hundred years. The original building was designed in the Romanesque style, but it was rebuilt several times. Now its fa?ade and tower are made in the late Gothic style, but the interior has retained the charming designs of 13 - 14 centuries. The inner decoration of the cathedral’s halls has never been changed.
Several notable buildings are located near the cathedral. Visitors are recommended to attend Bishop’s Garden and the arcade located on its territory. Giant stained-glass windows depicting saints are the main decoration of the arcade. If you manage to visit this city in late August, you will be able to participate in a nice holiday - Festival of Early Music. At this time of year the city attracts best musicians from different parts of the world. The beautiful music is played here during seven days, rejoicing and delighting music lovers.
