When it comes to ancient architecture, nothing’s ever been more captivating and enchanting like an ancient cathedral that still stands its grounds. If you’re into the gothic aesthetic then there’s no way you aren’t into ancient medieval cathedrals. Well, if you’re planning on visiting some of the best gothic cathedrals in the world then it’s about time you go ahead and check out St Nicholas’s Cathedral Church in New Castle.
If you haven’t ever seen this church before (or at least you think you haven’t), then take our world for it and go visit it without seeing it in pictures. You’ll recognize it – we all do. You may have seen this cathedral in some video game, maybe in a movie or in the backdrop of some artistic photography. ST Nicholas’s Cathedral is known to have been built in 1091, though some sources confirm it to be even older, but despite its ancient history, the cathedral is still very much functional today.
You don’t have to be a student of architecture to walk into a 1000 year old building that’s withstood the test of time and will stay standing for maybe a thousand years more too. Of course, the reason why the Cathedral is still as grand as they day it was built is due to the restoration efforts that have been made to preserve it over the years.
With a 1000 years of history in its walls, this is one building you just have to visit. Why wouldn’t you want to be present in a building so ancient and seemingly immortal? Team Build Construction recommends St Nicholas’s Cathedral as one of the five ancient buildings that you just have to see in New Castle whenever you visit.
