Dom window

Dom Church (Utrecht, Netherlands)

The Dom Church in Utrecht is at the very centre of the country. It is one of Holland’s two pre-Reformation cathedrals, but has been a Protestant sanctuary since 1580. Its architecture resembles the Gothic constructions that were usually built in France at that time. The church tower of some 112 metres is the highest in the Netherlands and is quite iconic.

Although I frequently visit Utrecht, I had never been inside the building. So on our sister’s day out we decided to do a photo tour and take pictures of everything that looked interesting. The interior had some worthwhile features, but this scene of the chandelier against the window struck me most and I immediately knew that this would be my next contribution to Monday Window.
