Canada - Ottawa (CA-42283)

This beautiful postcard shows he cathedral in Ottawa, the capital of Canada. It was built in neo-Gothis style between 1839 and 1885 (it took a really long time) :) It's the oldest surviving church in Ottawa.
The interior of church is brightly painted and decorated with carved features, exquisite stained gladd windows and hundreds of statues or various religious figures.
Although there are many much older churches even in my city, I think this one is a really good place to forget about the world, which is outside and to pray or just think about something... But I've never been to Canada, so I can't be sure if my impression about this cathedeal is right :)
