While the world community is discussing how much time (and effort) it will take to restore the French relic – Notre Dame de Paris or Notre Dame Cathedral, which was damaged during the recent fire, we decided to find other equally majestic and important cathedrals of Europe, which definitely deserve your attention. You will only have to choose the direction and decide where you go first. Or, perhaps, you will make your own unique route that allows you to cover all these (and not only) places of worship.
Basilica of Notre Dame de Niese, France
This largest Church in nice, the construction of which began back in 1864, is called a reduced copy of the Notre Dame Cathedral.

For example, the young family decided to certainly find some unique foreign copy in order to replenish their impressive collection of tourist trophies, and in the eastern bazaar acquired an outwardly innocuous copy of a religious relic.

The poor woman almost went crazy, running between hospital wards and trying to figure out why all the misfortunes suddenly happened all at once.
