  Strasburg Notre-Dam Cathedral
by Kuznetsov_Sergey
 
 

Cathedral - " the big pink Angel of Strasbourg " as its Frenchmen poetically name, - one of the greatest samples of Gothic architecture of Northern Europe. The high openwork composition whimsically framed by turrets, spikes, imperously dominates over old city.
The Cathedral, certainly, suppresses in the grandiose sizes. It is only a little smaller than the Cologne Cathedral, but lager then Parisian Noter Dam. One tower, unfortunately wasn't completed, therefore the asymmetrical facade spoils a picture a little, but, observing the Cathedral from other sides, it is not be noticed. Unlike the Cologne cathedral of black color, the Strasbourg cathedral has a red-claret shade.
