• Berliner Dom highlights European cathedrals

    2013-02-28

    When it comes to Europe travel, most people can agree that the continent is home to some of the most beautiful buildings in the world. It should come as no surprise that European architects have been designing breathtaking structures for centuries, and luckily many of them stand in good condition to this day. While there are plenty to choose from, there are certain buildings that stand above the rest, according to The Huffington Post.

    Berliner Dom
    Also known as the Berlin Cathedral, the Berliner Dom is among the most recognizable structures in the German capital. Viewed from afar, this popular tourist destination, which dates back to the 1450s, is arguably one of the most striking buildings in Europe. However, its most appealing aspect is what rests inside. If you're up for the journey, you can climb up to the cathedral's iconic dome and take in spectacular views of Berlin you won't be able to find anywhere else. Not to mention, the intricate design work of the interior rivals that of what you see outside.

    Reims Cathedral
    France has so many beautiful buildings that it can be hard to keep track of which ones you should visit, but make sure you don't miss out on Reims Cathedral. The building dates back until the late 1200s, and welcomes an estimated 500,000 visitors each year. The cathedral is impressive not only due to its sheer size, but also because its exterior is adorned with many beautifully designed statues. Reims Cathedral has also played an important role in French history, because it served as the sight of every king's coronation from the Medieval period up through the mid-19th century.

    Cathedral of the Dormition
    Many people believe that the best pieces of architecture reside only in western Europe, but the east has plenty to offer in its own right. Case in point: Cathedral of the Dormition in Ukraine. Located in the capital city of Kiev, this stunning church, which was rebuilt after being damaged during World War II, is iconic thanks to its several golden domes. According to The Huffington Post, the interior is almost as impressive as its breathtaking outward appearance, so you should make sure to spend time inside as well.
