St. John's Cathedral,'s-Hertogenbosch - NETHERLANDS
On my way to Gouda one more stop for a fresh lemonade and a visit to the most important Gothic Cathedral in the Netherlands on a town with a name I can't pronounce, no matter how many times I try - St. John's Cathedral in 's-Hertogenbosch. I'm not a believer, but I really love to visit sacred places (from all religions) and the interior of this cathedral is simply breathtaking beautiful; the paintings on the ceiling are marvelous and the pipe organ is probably the most impressive I've seen and heard in my life.
The Roman Catholic Cathedral Church of St. John (Sint-Janskathedraal) of 's-Hertogenbosch, North Brabant is the height of gothic architecture in the Netherlands. It has an extensive and richly decorated interior, and serves as the cathedral for the bishopric of 's-Hertogenbosch. The cathedral has a total length of 115 and a width of 62 metres. Its tower reaches 73 metres high. In 1985, it received the honorary title of Basilica Minor from pope John Paul II.
