      Tribute to Frère Roger

Don't pass by this church, just because it's not as famous as the cathedral.It used to be the university church and it's close to the university square. It's a baroque church, really high inside.The way the chairs were arranged was very unusual. I don't know if it was done for some specific purpose or if it is always like this, but the chairs were arranged in a circle. (So no hiding behind someone's back if the sermon is boring.) It enhanced the feeling of wide space I had in this church.
In an corner there was a tribute to Frère Roger, the founder of the community of Taizé who had been murdered in 2005.
