The modern twist with the glass ornaments is worth a visit. Besides the glass ornaments, not much decoration to be seen in the cathedral (as expected based on origin).

Besides the beauty of it, inside and out, the church is actually quite tall and I used it to find my way around because I am easily lost. I can say it guided me! 😋

This is a beautiful, old cathedral free to walk around and view and take photos. We didn’t find an unlocked restroom, though. There are still services held in it.

The church worths a visit if you are around the city. The interior is not outstanding however still impressive throughout simplicity. Exterior is monumental architecture that stands out in the city. Worths a visit.

Just went there to a Concert with two choirs - amazing sound in the church. Beautiful chandeliers and colorful led-windows. A old historical place, despite that quite modern interior.

A strange cathedral with two towers, but it fascinates. Inside, many installations of glass. Entrance -  free. Be sure to visit.

This is a very stylish church with some lovely glass features. There is a lovely cafe in the adjacent building. Large car park to the rear.

As we walked in, the organist was playing. Lovely acoustics! There are 3 organs there, There are three pipe organs!When you first enter, you are struck by how plain the white walls are. Once you focus in, you see that there are exquisite glass sculptures...More

The exterior is more impressive than the interior. There was no guidance on what was sidnificant inside. You can wander around inside and look.
