A congregation like none other, the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam mostly is an epic and stunning notorious bit of sort of Dutch history and culture. With development and various remodels for the most part finished in 1460, the congregation is washed in a red shade during the evening the way things are in the epicenter of the Red Light District of the city. Three sides of the structure include different pinnacles, amazing recolored glass establishments, and the mind-boggling feeling of custom. The engineering itself separates the congregation from it's associates and makes Oude Kerk essentially an amazing and remarkable experience.
The old church stood quietly, as if it could not understand the noise around it. Someone was smoking marijuana and someone was soliciting business.
The old church next to the red light district feels very reluctant to stay there ~beside the church there are statues saluting sex workers all over the world.
Near Zhongyang Railway Station, Amsterdam. The building is magnificent, you can feel the strong atmosphere when you walk aside. I didn't have the opportunity to go in and see what was going on inside such a huge building. Leave it to the next time.
The old church is also an old church along the Amsterdam Canal. Compared with the empty inside of the new church, the decoration style is a bit dark. After careful reading the instructions, we found the people buried under the brick. It feels a little chilly.
The old church (Oude Kerk) stands in the heart of the red-light district as if it was watching all the carnival underneath its feet. However, it is the most important monument in Amsterdam and has been playing the role of the cathedral since it was built in the early 13th century. The church was originally dedicated to Saint Nicholas, the sailor's guardian saint, but after the religious revolution, the church was accepted by Protestants, and now only in some humble corners can the traces of the old religion be found.
Walking here on Sunday morning is very quiet and beautiful. The bell rings and walks in the empty lane as if the world had nothing to do with me. The church was originally dedicated to Saint Nicholas, the sailor's patron saint, but after the religious revolution, the church was accepted by Protestants, and now only in some humble corners can the traces of the old religion be found.
The Catholic doctrine prohibits extramarital sex, which is a crime. So when the clients are happy, they go to the church to pray for God's forgiveness. It's really convenient. It's next door. At the beginning, the church became rich by selling something similar to "atonement vouchers], and the old church was gradually repaired and expanded from a small church to what it is now. Even church bells help window girls; sex workers use 15 minutes as a service, and of course there won't be an alarm clock ticking next door for another 3 minutes and 20 seconds. Now they use music to remind time. A piece of music lasts just 15 minutes. But in the 18th century, before the advent of the iPhone and the ipod, church bells were such a reminder, and church bells still ring every 15 minutes. Dutch business minds have to be admired, even in churches.
Church is the place where many people gather in Europe. The old church in Amsterdam is the oldest building project here. It was built in the early 14th century. Its exterior is old and its interior spire is invisible.
