Katedrala Sarajevo, Sarajevo

4.0
The neo-Gothic and Romanesque-styled Katedrala Sarajevo serves as the largest cathedral in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and has become a symbol of Sarajevo. Completed in 1889, the 43.2 m (141.7 ft) tall church resembles Notre Dame, with elements of typical Bosnian ornamentation. Tour the interior to see stained-glass windows that elaborately depict Biblical motifs, and see numerous frescoes created by world-famous Italian-German painter Alexander Maximilian Seitz. Observe geometrical shapes on the floors and walls, and view detailed artistic ornamentation on the woodwork. You'll also see the archbishop's tomb at the site.
