Architecture of Strasbourg

I love the architecture of Strasbourg, I don’t know why, but I felt very good in this city, as if I had lived here for many years. I’m sure one of the big reasons for that was friendship with Alex. And another reason is the good people of Strasbourg as well as its beauty.

In this photo you can see “Strasbourg Cathedral” which has a long story (you can read in wikipedia) It was described by Victor Hugo as a “gigantic and delicate marvel”, and by Goethe as a “sublimely towering, wide-spreading tree of God”. Strasbourg is chiefly known for its sandstone Gothic Cathedral with its famous astronomical clock, and for its medieval cityscape of Rhineland black and white timber-framed buildings, particularly in the Petite France district or Gerberviertel (“tanners’ district”) alongside the Ill and in the streets and squares surrounding the cathedral, where the renowned Maison Kammerzell stands out
