My favorite Cathedrale is of course Notre Dame de Paris and I am surprised it hasn't been posted yet!
My dream would be to have an appartment with a view on Notre Dame de Paris...

The cathedral of St.Maria Matricolare in Verona, also known as Duomo, is definitely not the best church we have in town.
Still think it's worth showing, being a great example of stratification of different styles.It might not impress you in the first place, but it is a box full of treasures.

If ever an Italian church needed to be finished... it would have to be San Lorenzo, the parish church and mausoleum of the Medici's in Florence.

How can a work of art with parts completed by Brunelleschi, Michelangelo and other great Renaissance artists... be left so incomplete.

It looks very sad that it is left in an unfinished state....

Mariacki church in Gdansk

It is a co-cathedral in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Gdańsk, along with the main cathedral for the Archdiocese, the Basilica-Cathedral of Gdańsk-Oliwa.

It is the largest brick church in the world.

St. Mary's is one of the largest European Brick Gothic buildings, which include castles. From 1577 until 1945, when it was named the Marienkirche, it was the biggest Evangelical Lutheran church in the world. It is 105.5 m long, and the nave is 66 m wide. Inside the church is room for 25,000 people. It is an aisled hall church with a transept.

According to tradition, as early as 1243 a wooden Church of the Assumption existed at this site, built by Prince Swiętopełk II.

The foundation stone for the new brick church was placed on on March 25, 1343, the feast of the Annunciation. At first a six-span basilica with a low turret was built, erected from 1343 to 1360. Parts of the pillars and lower levels of the turret have been preserved from this building.

In 1379 the masonry master Heinrich Ungeradin led his team to start construction of the present church. St. Mary's Church in Lübeck, the mother of all Brick Gothic churches dedicated to St. Mary in Hanseatic cities around the Baltic, is believed to be the archetype of the building. By 1447 the eastern part of the church was finished, and the tower was raised by two floors in the years 1452-1466.

Since 1485 the work was continued by Hans Brandt, who supervised the erection of the main nave core. The structure was finally finished after 1496 under Heinrich Haetzl, who supervised the construction of the vaulting.

In 1577, during the Reformation, the church became a Lutheran church. Since the kings of Poland remained Catholic and were the nominal heads of the City following the decay of the Monastic state of the Teutonic Knights, they authorized building the baroque Catholic Royal Chapel. It was erected by Tylman Gamerski near St. Mary's Church for the king's service when he visited the City.

After the Partitions of Poland, Prussian authorities took many precious items from the church, including cloths and vestments made of fabrics from ancient Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt, obtained during the Crusades; as well as renaissance wares from Venice, Florence and Lucca (more than 1000 items altogether). Many artifacts were sold.

In addition, the Prussians melted down gold and silver reliquaries for reuse; they also reused golden threads from embroideries in uniforms for Prussian officers.

The church was severely damaged in World War II, during the storming of Danzig city by the Red Army in March 1945. The wooden roof burned completely and most of the ceiling fell in. Fourteen of the large vaults collapsed. The windows were destroyed. In places the heat was so intense that some of the bricks melted, especially in the upper parts of the tower, which acted as a giant chimney.

Most of the artworks from the interior survived, as they had been evacuated for safekeeping to the villages surrounding the city. Many of these have returned to the church, but some are displayed in various museums around Poland.

The reconstruction and renovation of the interior is an ongoing effort and continues to this day.
