Iconic cultural sights of Germany

Cologne was badly damaged during the bombing in the Second World War, but most of the monuments of architecture were restored. The ensemble of 12 Romanesque churches is among them. The oldest of them, the Church of Saint Gereon, was founded in the 4th century. The main attraction of the city, the Cologne Cathedral, was built in the Gothic style. The edifice suffered even a direct hit of a bomb; today it is one of the few original surviving in the city.
