This cathedral might be the most beautiful in Cork, I’ve never been there till yesterday, and didn’t realize how big and beautiful it is. I wish I had more time to spend there, but I only took few pictures. According to Wikipedia there is an organ with 3012 pipes, I wonder if it’s possible to listen to it in action.
Despite of the souvenir shop on the entrance, the atmosphere in the cathedral is amazing – it’s very dark in there, it has a lot of columns and decorations, so it doesn’t feel like a one huge hall, more like multiple connected shelters. What you can’t feel there is the smell of candles – in Ireland it’s not common to burn the candles in the churches at all.

Prague from the Petřín Lookout Tower
Petřín Tower is very compact, and it’s pretty easy to take the stairs to the top and back . If the weather is clear you can see the whole Prague underneath. And the view is definitely worth it. Petřín Tower is famous for it’s resemblance with the Eiffel Tower, but it definitely has it's own character. [...]
