  Utrecht: St. Gertrudis cathedral
by OlafS
 
 

Utrecht is a city of cathedrals. Apart from the only real Gothic cathedral in the Netherlands and the Roman Catholic St. Catharina, there is this Old-Catholic St. Getrudis. The Old-Catholics are the result of a conflict within the Roman Catholic church in the 18th century. Ever since the Old-Catholics have used different architectural styles for their churches than the Roman Catholics. The St. Getrudis, the cathedral of the Old-Catholic diocese of Utrecht, is an example. It was built in 1912-1914 in neo-Romanesque style. I can't say anything about what's inside, as I haven't been in there myself.
