Vilnius in Lithuania with its cathedral square is the perfect location for New Year’s Eve.

New Year’s Eve | Vilnius, Lithuania

The square was built in the 19th century after the reconstruction of Vilnius Cathedral. It is now the biggest square of Vilnius, a former area dense with public renaissance and medieval buildings. This photo of the cathedral square with the Christmas Tree was taken a day before celebrating New Year’s Eve in Vilnius a few years ago.

This cross-domed Orthodox basilica was one of the monuments that initially sparked my interest in photography and of course, I eventually developed a longing to visit Sofia. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the capital of Bulgaria, is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox churches in the world and incorporates different architectural elements from across Europe.

Piazza del Duomo | Milan, Italy

Milano Duomo is the 5th largest Cathedral in the world and among this list of five – it is the oldest Cathedral. The day before I took this photo, we were enjoying some “Spritz” with a friend in a rooftop bar. From there, we had a view of the top of the Cathedral. From a bird’s eye view, you can see the many sculptures that are decorating the Duomo Towers.

Basilica di San Domenico in Sienna, Italy – a summer’s day.

Who doesn’t think of Tuscany when they hear of hills and vineyards? The interesting thing is that it is not just the wineries that are built on the hills – the cities take advantage of the terrain. Sienna is one of them – you could walk through the old town and enjoy the view of the sights from a distance.

Florence Cathedral - Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore in Italy.

Florence Cathedral with Brunelleschi Duomo | Florence, Italy

For many decades after the establishment of Florence Duomo in the 13th Century, the Florence Cathedral was opened, and it took the genius mind of Filippo Brunelleschi to figure out exactly how to build the dome, the first of its kind in the 15th Century. In our day today, it dominates the skyline of the city and makes you marvel at how this structure survived through the ages.
