If we would need to choose most beautyful church inside, this might be the one. We don´t usually go to so many churches as many people do, because we found them looking quite the same inside, and to us living in Lutherian country, there is so much gold and decorations in many central European chuches, that it´s too fancy for us.
But when we saw the photos of this church inside at my art book, we thought we MUST see this. And it was so beautyful! You might call me crazy, but Notre Dame didn´t feel nothing like that for us.
You will see at the photos what I mean. Maybe you wont think so, but we did.
There was a huge line outside waiting to get in. We wer lucky to have our Museum pass and go straight in. We did get some angry looks.. Maybe some people didn´t understnad why we got straight in.
