Notre Dame, Paris

Notre-Dame facadeNotre Dame in Paris is one of the most attractive landmarks. The Cathedral is the most famous in the world thanks to its location, architecture, and numerous references to various historical and artistic works. It is situated on the island in the Seine – Île de la Cité. This is why it can be observed from different points and demonstrate its beauty – architectural details, sculptures on the façade and on the roof, rose windows, and famous gargoyles. The interior decorations are pretty simple. The only things that make interior colourful and beautiful are rose windows with its stunning glass.Rose Window - Notre-DameHowever there is one thing which makes Notre Dame fascinating inside is acoustic. Thanks to it the organ and choir sound clear and powerful. It cannot leave you indifferent. The worship is kind of magical performance where the faithful and clergymen act like one body. The spirit of eternity is flying here.Paris landmarkNotre-Dame is looking gorgeous from any place and at any time of the day. Enjoy the gallery!

    • Thank you, Scott. Lovely city! Unfortunately, today Paris is associated with terror, grief and sadness. I hope people of Paris will recover from that tragedy.

    • Thank you Shona, it is for sure beautiful rose window. This kind of windows have their own charm in every single cathedral in the world. They are so different but have one thing in common – Beauty!

  5. I would love to hear the sound in this cathedral! I sang in the Washington Cathedral when I was in high school and it was a powerful experience. The high ceilings let the sound rise up to touch the heavens and the stone amplified it all. Wish I had been with you to hear the music.

    • Acoustic is great in Cathedral and the real sound do not interfere with the echo. That’s why you can hear every single word of the song. Music penetrates you. It is beautiful experience.
