St. Patrick's Cathedral
Ireland, Dublin (city)

The cathedral is the largest church in Ireland. In fact, the church is made in the Protestant style. At a time when Cromwell pacified the Irish with fire and sword, the church suffered significant damage, which was restored only in the 1860s. The abbot of this cathedral of 1713-45, the famous satirist Jonathan Swift, is buried in this cathedral. The font, covered with tiles in the 13th century, located above the western Old Chapel, is all that is preserved from the original building. The best preserved medieval part of the buildings of the cathedral. The amazingly magical sounds of the church choir (founded in 1783) are still heard in the walls of this cathedral during the liturgy. Of the many monuments located within the walls of the cathedral, the most exciting impression is the monument erected by Count Korsky in memory of his wife Catherine.
