A must-visit. Just get the deep and hard feeling how the war awful is. That's it. A powerful hit of tragedy over a steady and calm life - just not to forget, that wars should never happen any more.

A war memorial that everyone should visit. A huge old church destroyed by bombs, a lesson for the next generation about war and barbarism!

Make sure you are there 5 mins past the hour to hear the bells. Sit and absorb the history for a few minutes don't just rest in and out. Worth a little time.

In the middle of a modern city you can find yourself inside sth weird and great. Empty, but you feel the spirit of that time. Your imagination starts drawing pictures of how it might have been going hundred years ago, and a bell sound makes...More

It is a well known approach to leave a partial destroyed building as it is to commemorate a catastrophic period or occurrence. Examples are the bombed out church in Berlin as a memorial to WW II or the destroyed church in Venzone, Italy as a...More
