Description

The cathedral in Cologne, Germany, serves as a monumental symbol of unity because of the thousands of people who have helped with its design, planning, and construction. Begun as a Gothic masterpiece in 1248, abandoned half-finished for several hundred years, and finally restored and completed in the 1800s, the cathedral has remained a stalwart icon of the unity of the city. From the 19th century to the present, the Cologne cathedral remains a source of national pride.
