“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Although not religious we found the cathedral well worth a visit. The architecture is interesting and it is not over-ornate. There was an organ recital when we visited which was very pleasant

This is probably wonderful but end of Sept 2012 was being renovated so restricted access, scaffolding etc. Hard to tell.

Whilst scaffolding was up around the building inside was clear and accessible. The art and the history were stunning with haunting organ music in the background beautiful icons superb architecture.

“Serene”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

Well worth a visit. The cathedral has been in existence since approx 1500 a.d. and is steeped in history. I was fascinated by the bemused faces of the marble lions guarding the steps to the altar. The organist was practising while we were there and it added to the Gothic atmosphere.

“peace and beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

the organist was practising when we went in - so atmospheric and peaceful and authentic, even in the heart of the tourist district of the old town.
