Yes Zagreb Cathedral is used for Catholic worship. Croatia is a predominantly Catholic country

A selection of churches that Pierre Cuypers build around the Netherlands. Just exterior pictures that give an overview.
Note that a lot of the churches are not elaborate cathedrals. A lot of his works must be seen in a more provincial perspective. Most of them are rather detailed, but it's mostly brickwork, which is cost-efficient.

This really is just a small fraction of his work. I think he built around 40 churches from ground up. But he also "renovated" a lot of churches, which sometimes mend that the church was extended, got a spire added or was altered beyond recognition and he structurally improved old churches. He also had many decorationjobs. Which bring the number of churches he worked on around 100.

Our Ladychurch in Pey, 1855, 1860-1861


Saint Martinuschurch in Maastricht, 1857-1858


Saint-Lambertuschurch in Veghel, 1858-1862.


Saint-Willibrorduschurch in Demen, 1857-1860, 1890


Saint-Gertrudischurch in Jabeek,


Saint Catharinachurch in Eindhoven, 1861-1867


Posthoornchurch in Amsterdam, 1860-1889


Saint Dominicanchurch in Alkmaar, built in 1850-1870 and demolished in 1985 (don´t be sad Alkmaar has another big church by Cuypers.


Saint Willibrorduschurch in Sappemeer, 1871-1873


Saint Vituschurch in Blauwhuis, 1869-1871


Saint Vituschurch in Hilversum, 1890-1892

It really is. It has a nice location on top of a ridge which makes it visible from afar, which can be seen in dj4life's post above. It's a small compensation for the fact that one of the city's original brick gothic churches, Storkyrkan, was reclad in baroque style in the 18th century.

Here's a smaller and less exciting one a few blocks away:

Sankt Georgios church, Stockholm

Built in 1890 for the Catholic Apostolic Church and now occupies the Greek-Orthodox Church.

Oscar Fredrik church/Oscar Fredriks kyrka:

Oscar Fredrik Church is a church in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was drawn by Helgo Zetterwall and erected in the 1890s. The style is Neo Gothic, but the influence is not the Nordic gothic style but rather the style one can find in the large cathedrals down in continental Europe. The church and the parish got its name from king Oscar II (Oscar Fredrik being his full name).

The Swedish churches are beautiful - so is Stockholm.

This is stunning. I am very interested in all aspects of church - and altar - structure and design. Those frescoes are unusual and impressive. I would like to see a close-up of the smaller panels under the stained glass.

I assume all of these churches are Lutheran?

St John's Church, Bergen, Norway. Built between 1891 and 1894 in a design by Christiania (now Oslo)-based Herman Major Backer. It is currently the highest building in the city at 61 meters.

Here I have again a project by architect Pierre Cuypers. But the case is that he pretty much is the embodiment of the gothic revival in my country. And I don't know much about such buildings outside the Netherlands.
There is GoogleStreetview all over the estate! -> https://maps.google.com/maps?q=haarz...5.41,,0,-26.48

This is Castle the Haar. Technically it is an renovation, but it was totally in ruins (like there was almost nothing left) when it was property of a not very wealthy aristocrat. When he married a very wealthy woman, he decided to buy up all the land around it (including a village!) and rebuild the entire castle in a romanticized and extended fashion so actually everything is new. Huge landscaped gardens were planted around it, farms were relocated, and the village was rebuilt 600 meters further. Construction took place from 1892 to 1912.

The tents are for a fair. There are more buildings outside the picture.


Entrance main building



On the aerial you can see the little church. That was were the village church stood. It was torn down and on its foundations a family chapel was built. And the new waterworks made it an island. Inside is the tomb-of the baron, that's how you create heritage


A funny anecdote. This the stables court next to the entrance of the domain (not on the aerial) it normally houses the carriages and horses. But the baron was a founder of the first automobile-club in the Netherlands. So it was used for cars and one of the towers next to the entrance contains a tank for petrol The castle had more of such novelties, like electricity.


The inside is were the decoration really got loose. For the outside it would have been not done to give it such a clerical look.



A gothic bathroom, seriously?


This is how it originally was in 1646.


All pictures from Wikimedia commons, there are many hundreds of pictures there.

Speaking about neo-gothic. This must be one of the most defining pictures of the NEO in neo-gothic.

Medieval architecture for a utilitarian structure as a supported bridge and for the highrise office in the background. Both structures are in their own way highly dependent on steel.
