This cathedral looks so impressive from the outside, a bit like the one in Palermo where on entering one cannot fail to be disappointed because the magnificance is not continued. However the wide and many steps up to the entrance are really something else again....More

In St Nicholas Cathedral you can see and enjoy the beauty of architecture and art. It is accessable by going up a number of steps at the side of the cathedral.

This is a really special and impressive Monument. The building seems to glow from inside in copper Colour in the late afternoon light. But of course many many tourists.
