At the Dom-Church in Utrecht a huge image of the inside hangs at the outside of the building to welcome you in this area. It looks like you watch straight into an open church.
But this is the real inside. The Dom-Church was the cathedral of the bishopric of Utrecht during the Middle Ages. It has been a Protestant church since 1580. The building is the one church in the Netherlands that closely resembles the classic Ghotic style as developed in France.
As often happens during history the buildings are many times destroyed by men or nature. What remains of this church today are the choir, the transept and the Dom Tower.The central nave of the cathedral which collapsed in the storm of 1674 is now a square with large trees, the Dom square, seen in the first picture.
