Brunswick Cathedral

Brunswick Cathedral, also known as St. Blasius Cathedral, is a historic landmark in Braunschweig, Germany. It is a breathtaking piece of Gothic architecture that dates back to the 12th century. The cathedral was built on the site of a former Romanesque church and it took over 400 years to complete. One of the most striking features of Brunswick Cathedral is its towering spires that soar to heights of 90 meters. This makes it the tallest building in the city and a must-visit location for tourists. Inside the cathedral, visitors can admire the intricate details of the stained-glass windows, the stunning vaulted ceilings, and the beautiful altarpiece. There are also several notable tombs and monuments inside the cathedral, including the tomb of Henry the Lion, a powerful ruler who played a pivotal role in the history of the area. Another famous monument is the bronze statue of John of Nepomuk, known as the 'water confessor,' who is said to have been thrown into the river by King Wenceslaus for refusing to reveal the queen's confession.
