Koln or Cologne, Germany

The first photo was the Romisch-Germanisches Museum, portrays early Roman life along the River Rhine. The extensive glassware and earthenware collections from the first to fifth centuries are augmented by the Tomb of Poblicius and the Dionysus Mosaic. The mosaic is surprisingly vivid.
The second photo was the DOM (Koln Cathedral) is one of the largest Gothic structures in the world. Its foundation dates from 1248, but the edifice was not complete until 1880. The first monumental crucifix in Northern Europe, created before 1000, and the Golden Shrine of the Three Magi are of special interest.

Have A Nice Day to y'all.....
