St. Matthias Church is a Roman Catholic church situated on historic Boschstraat Street. The church is named after the apostle Matthias and is one of the city’s four large Catholic parishes. It was constructed between the 14th and 16th centuries and was built using local stone. It was designed in the Gothic style and has a three-aisle nave, a tower and a choir vestry. The church houses a statue of Mary Magdalene by Jan van Steffeswert, a 15th-century Pieta, a Louis XIV pulpit, an 18th-century baptismal font and a Bivignat organ from 1809. There are also stained-glass windows created by Charles Eyck.

此全景拍摄于Netherlands, Europe


Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
