Two words, Absolutely stunning. The architecture of this church is so beautiful and majestic. Once you enter you’ll find a bunch of candles devoted to the gods. You’ll have to donated 50 cents and offer a candle. Once you enter, you will immediately experience calmness and a positive energy. Everyone is welcome here and that’s the best part.

Absolutely amazing church. Found it by chance and it is definitely the most beautiful in whole of Amsterdam. Totally recommended for both religious and lay people like me loving architecture. Interior is in gothic revival style...

I came to see the church and got a nosebleed. The staff were so very kind and caring towards me! The church is incredibly ornate and very beautiful as well. I am grateful I was there! You should go see this church even if you aren’t in need of medical help :)

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
