Cologne Cathedral and Romanic churches



Dom und Altstadt von Koln

Cologne Cathedral and the old town


A beautiful night panorama view postcard sent by Elke, Germany. 
The magnificent Cologne Cathedral hovers above the roofs and chimneys of the city. 

Alongside the Cathedral and museum, there are twelve Romanic churches which are also the main cultural highlights of Cologne. The Golden Chamber of St Ursula is amongst one of mystical and creepy. Golden Chamber (a small room at the left hand side of entrance) is filled with the brim with bones and skulls, which is said that these are bones of the 11000 virgins and St.Ursula herself.
