Discussing the eye-catcher of Utrecht


For every city, we will try to give you a story about one of our photos, but also a story about photos that we didn’t make (and why).

We start with the story about one of our photos, and for Utrecht, it is really too easy! We took a lot of pictures of the Dom. It is by far THE eye-catcher of Utrecht with a wonderful, colourful history. And to our surprise, its history is still in the making, as you can read in our section Inside & Out. Here a small excerpt of the story:

The sixteenth century came and went and then the tornado in described in Stad in de Storm did actually happen. In 1674, its path ran right through the cheaply constructed nave of the church, destroying it completely. The city and the people left the rubble lying around for a long time. When they finally cleaned it up, the city turned it into a grave yard. Nowadays, it is a square. You can walk underneath the Dom tower across the street to the square and the vanished nave marked in special stones at your feet.
