Cathedrals

Being a lifelong Beatles fan, I was so excited to be able to visit Liverpool — the birthplace of my favorite band — and see the iconic setting that, until that point, I had only read about in books.
My hands were shaking as I clasped the rough stone railing of the Charles Bridge and peered down at the black waters of the Vltava River rushing below. The iconic twin-spires of the Týn Church loomed against the night sky as fog edged in over the city.
It’s easy to get caught up in seeing the major cities in Germany. There are so many choices of dynamic and iconic cityscapes. One would be remiss if they overlooked spending a day in the charming city of Würzburg.
ABOUT THE CITY
Eelected the 2018 Capitale Italiana della Cultura, Palermo is more than simply the capital of Sicily or a pit stop on a tour of the Mediterranean. The city is a melting pot of historical culture; the shining crown of the island at the tip of Italy’s boot.
For many, Easter is a sacred holiday for commemorating Christ’s resurrection. It’s also viewed as a chance to welcome spring. In Germany, that is no different than in the United States. However, our host nation offers its own customs and traditions. Here are some you may experience.
In the heart of Vienna, you will easily spot the giant spire of the magnificent Gothic cathedral, St. Stephen’s, soaring 450 feet skyward. If you are on the famous Ringstrasse Road that surrounds Vienna in a circle, look up to the most imposing spire that is St. Stephen’s.
When traveling in Europe, cathedral spires often seem as numerous as souvenir shops and restaurants. Notre Dame, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica are on everyone’s bucket list. Here are five fascinating European cathedrals and chapels worth visiting.
