Je ne crois pas que ce soit une cathédrale mais c'est une magnifique église de Vienne qui s'inscrit dans le mouvement du Jugendstil.

Wowers! European churchwork looks so 'Eastern' when alikened to English churchwork.

A few pictures of some major French gothic cathedrals which, surprisingly, weren’t shown in this long thread. They are sorted by increasing size :



SAINT-DENIS :
Today a cathedral, but it was an abbey church when it was built. Gothic style is generally considered to have been "created" here. The church is also famous because it's where kings of France were generally buried.

Still more or less Romanesque western façade (1130’s):


The façade with its northern tower and spire (destroyed in the early XIXth century) :


Early gothic ambulatory (1140’s)






BOURGES
Sometimes considered the sister of Paris Cathedral, as both were built at the same time or so (late XIIth century) and share common features. It’s also famous for its stained-glass windows. Amongst many differences, Bourges is a little bigger, shows 5 portals on the western façade, and has no transept.











CHARTRES
Probably the best preserved gothic cathedral in France, as it kept most of its XIIth and XIIIth century sculptures and stained-glass.












REIMS
One of the biggest cathedrals. It’s famous because that’s were the kings of France used to be crowned. The building was badly damaged during WWI and was subsequently repaired/rebuilt. It still keeps beautiful and famouse sculptures though.




Late XIXth century :



After or during WWI :







BEAUVAIS
The unachieved cathedral.
The tallest gothic vault ever made (nearly 50m). But the cathedral was left unfinished. Only the choir and transept were built.







The old Xth century cathedral (basse oeuvre) which should have been destroyed, had the gothic nave been built, was thus partially preserved :
