We were passing by. Children were fascinated by the bones under the glass panels outside the cathedral. We could not find explanation about the grave. We think they are from 1200 - based on some writing on the glass panel. Fascinating display that opened up sureal conversation with 9, 6 and 3 year old.

Well worth a visit. This is beautiful cathedral right in the centre of the square. Make sure to look out for the Crypts on the way in.

The church is now a state monument and protected ,it still holds limited religious services on Sundays, it has a exhibition of artefacts including skeleton remains, dug up from the forecourt of the church which was a former graveyard, the towers house a superb carillon, and church bells 🔔 on which regular recitals are performed .

Inside of the cathedral, in its frond side, there's a small... More

So central and wonderful to have something so old and peaceful right bang in the bustle of the market square. Visited a few times just for the peace. Beautiful place to sit and rest for a few minutes.
