Back view of the Basilica of St. Nicholas anno 1884
Netherlands, Amsterdam, May 2013

About 5 years ago I posted the front view of this church: http://www.fotothing.com/senna3/photo/c0b5e7e608b86aea80c944a1dec16a8e/

The Basilica of St. Nicholas (or Sint-Nicolaasbasiliek in Dutch) is located in the Old Centre district of Amsterdam. It is the city's major Catholic church. Officially the church was called " St. Nicholas inside the Walls", i.e. inside the oldest part of the Amsterdam defence works. The architect, Adrianus Bleijs (1842-1912) designed the church basing himself on a combination of several revival styles of which Neo-Baroque and neo-Renaissance are the most prominent models: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basilica_of_St._Nicholas,_Amsterdam
