St. Nicolaaskerk Church: Amsterdam

This Amsterdam basilica has two towers with a gorgeous rose window in between. The baroque dome has a stained-glass inner shell that was recently restored. Built in the 1880s, the church is likely the best known of the "new" Amsterdam churches. Opposite the Amsterdam Central Railway Station, the church is named for St. Nicholas, the patron saint of the city.
