Beautiful building

Massive church. This is probably one of the landmarks of the city. There is a huge place in front of this church. I liked most the statues aboube the columns. It is a great place to visit.

Astonishing building. Very grandiose and nicely kept. On Sunday, I found it open with and without the function going on inside.

Very nice Catholic Cathedral in Vac county in Hungary

Amazing cathedral in baroque style. Building started in 1699, but finished about 50 years later. Frescos inside by a renown Austrian painter of the time. The large square in front and the South-Western aspect allows for nice pictures to be taken. Vac in general is well worth a daytrip for the baroque old town and the Danube walk. Many nice cafes, bars and restaurants are available. Parking by car is for a small charge in the centre.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
