I went to Wells in Somerset, UK last week, they have a beautiful cathedral with an unusual design, the town also has less than 10,000 residents so it is strange to see such a large cathedral there.

The Cathedral in my home city, Mechelen. This is the St.Rombouts Cathedral. Unfinished though.

Mine is the Catholic Cathedral in the village of Vares, Bosnia-Herzegovina.

It's a beautiful village and the church has interesting geometric patterns on the exterior, and beautiful murals inside.

For me it's Amiens cathedral. If I knew how to attach photos, I'd post some.

Frauenkirche Dresden, Germany

IMO this is by far the most beautiful cathedral in the world. It will reopen this year - a symbol of peace and reconciliation.

I would probably choose Riverside Church, b/c it definately one of the tallest.

Thanks for all the great pictures, folks! They're all beautiful, but each has a unique beauty that makes it REALLY hard for me to pick and choose...and I'll feel more confident to choose, at any rate, after I see more of the great cathedrals of Europe...I am SO looking forward to getting back to England, and going to France

BTW, those huge "scissor arches" in the crossing at Wells were put in to keep the crossing tower from collapsing; it's a tribute to the master mason who designed them that they also work so well aesthetically. Necessity is the mother of invention...

It's incredible to me that those Medieval Gothic marvels were built without modern technology (or mathematics!) , and are still standing...

St Paul's

Built in the late 1600's on the orders of Charles II, it is the largest Protestant cathedral in the world and stands 111m tall.

The building survived the terrible devastation of the Blitz, while everything else around it burned.
