#74 - Roskilde Cathedral

The Roskilde Cathedral in Denmark was built in the 12th and 13th centuries. It's the first Gothic style church to be made of bricks in Europe.

Roskilde Cathedral has been the main burial site for Danish monarchs since the 15th century. As such, it has been significantly extended and altered over time as individual rulers have added multiple burial chapels.

Thanks to Christina for sending the first card of August :)
