Cathedral of Saint Nicolas, Rotterdam

The Museum Park in Rotterdam houses a very special church. This cross-shaped Greek Orthodox cathedral is very simple on the outside, but as soon as you step inside, you will find yourself in a picture book. The whole church is completely painted with scenes in beautiful colors. The images take you into the life of Saint Nicholas and other saints. The biggest surprise is the beautifully decorated dome. So don't forget to look up!
