The French have their Notre Dame, the Dutch have their – St. John’s Cathedral (Sint-Janskathedraal) in ‘s-Hertogenbosch (North Brabant). In short – Den Bosch. Decorated with lace ornaments (Brabant once was famous for its laces) and extraordinarily beautiful building was erected during three centuries – from 1220 to the 1530 years. But who stares carefully at her adorning 25 statues of angels, will see the one who… is talking by a mobile phone and is dressed in jeans – the effect of the last restoration. And while walking around the charming, Polish Torun-like old town, but with typical Dutch canals, it is possible to find the oldest surviving brick building in the Netherlands – “de Moriaan”, built in the early 13th century.
