St Nicholas Church in Hamburg Featured World War II (1939-1945) Image

St Nicholas Church in Hamburg

Formerly one of the five Lutheran Hauptkirchen (main churches) in the city of Hamburg. The church lies now in ruins, with only its tower remaining, serving as a memorial and an important architectural landmark. When Hamburg residents mention the Nikolaikirche, it is generally to this church that they are referring, and not the new Hauptkirche dedicated to Saint Nicholas, which is located in the Harvestehude district.The church was the tallest building in the world from 1874 to 1876 and is still the second-tallest building in Hamburg.The current condition of the Church of St. Nicholas is the result of the bombing of Hamburg in World War II, resultant demolition in 1951 and restoration work in the 1990s and 2012

Two Gothic windows destroyed by the Blitz in London Featured World War II (1939-1945) Image

Two Gothic windows destroyed by the Blitz in London

These two large and beautiful old stone and Gothic style windows are the remains of the abandoned church of St Dunstan in the East, located in the business district of the city of London, London, United Kingdom.
Through the windows we can see part of the small park inside this abandoned church. The walls are covered with wild plants and there are many trees and exotic plants. An isolated, quiet and unexpected place.
St Dunstan in the East church was destroyed in 1941 during the German blitz and bombings on the English capital. In 1967, it was decided to build a public garden around and inside its ruins.
