Norm’s Thursday Doors : 7 April 2016


 Cathedral door in Germany

Door of the Russian Orthodox Church in Weisbaden, Germany

I have another Cathedral door this week, this intricately carved one is the Russian Orthodox Church, in Weisbaden, in Germany.    One of the ways to get to this church is to travel by the funicular railway (built in 1888) which has only two carriages, and takes you to the top of a hill, through vineyards.   This trip was great fun for my grandchildren (and for us also)! There are amazing views of the city below once you get to the top, and as it isn’t very high, it’s possible to walk back down and catch a bus back to the city centre, if you so wish.

The Cathedral/Church itself is very impressive and ornate, as you can see, and the domes on top are golden, and glint in the sun.   It is the only Russian Orthodox Church in Weisbaden, and there is an old Russian cemetery next door.
