We enjoyed the light show in the evening. It was quit busy but not a problem to find a place with a good view.

Amazing Roman Catholic cathedral in almost perfect condition! Very interesting interior.. I saw the portrait of Jesus in very different styles, there’s a labyrinth in the center of the ground. Baroque sculptures. The area was completely destroyed during WWI, but the church was kept untouched thanks to the peoples protection.
One of the most beautiful cathedrals I have seen in my life due to the fact that it is quite old, with preserved orginal patterns and not very well-known! It has an amazing exterior and also an interior that you can enter for free! 😌
