The Church of virgin Mary: photo description (Marienkirche)

The Church of the virgin Mary - one of the primary monuments of Northern architecture, which served as a model for numerous Church buildings. The Church was built during the heyday of lübeck in 1251-1310 years on the model of French cathedrals, and was the personification of the pride of the burgesses for the city. This is a three-aisled Basilica with the world's highest arched brick ceiling (height 40 m, length 102 meters).

The Church is the largest mechanical organ in the world and the choir "Against war and violence", in which you can see two split four tons of the old bells, cast in 1508 and 1669. In the main nave you can see the font of 1337, and in the Capella - Antwerp altarpiece of 1518, dedicated to the virgin Mary. In the chapel of Pitcaple preserved one of the earliest (1310) samples of the stellar vault in Europe.
