Den Bosch In Your Pocket - St. Catherine's Church...
Almost 150 years ago, architect Jan Stuyt was deeply inspired by the Hagia Sophia on a trip to Istanbul, then Constantinople, and this gorgeous domed church, completed in 1917, is the result. Although a church has stood on the same spot since the 16th century, St. Catherine's Church is something completely unique to the city. Its colourful dome has a diameter of 22 metres and depicts the so-called Eight Glories and the Three Remaining Glories painted by artist Jan Oosterman. Every corner of the Kruisherenkerk (as it is known colloquially) is adorned with big wooden statues known as the choir of angels. It's also famous for its excellent acoustics and many concerts take place here for just that reason. The best time to visit is on an organised Kring Vrienden van 's-Hertogenbosch tour or just after mass. The Byzantine Society of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, who hold Latin services on Sundays, also have their own chapel in one section of the church.
