# 44 # ´s-Hertogenbosch in Netherland


The Roman Catholic Cathedral Church of St. John (Sint-Janskathedraal) of 's-Hertogenbosch is the height of gothic architecture in North Brabant, Netherlands. It has an extensive and richly decorated interior, and serves as the cathedral for the bishopric of 's-Hertogenbosch.
The cathedral has a total length of 115 and a width of 62 metres. Its tower reaches 73 metres high.
St. John’s Cathedral is a so-called ‘Kanjermonument’ (whopper-monument, loosely translated) and being such, it receives financial support from the Dutch government.
In 1985, it received the honorary title of basilica from pope John Paul II.

Die St.-Johannes-Kathedrale  ist eine römisch-katholische, gotische Kathedrale im Zentrum der niederländischen Stadt ’s-Hertogenbosch. Sie gilt als Höhepunkt der Brabanter Gotik in den Niederlanden und wurde zum Rijksmonument erklärt.

  2. It is very similar to British church architecture. I haven't had an idea that these kind of churches have been in The Netherlands :)
