Going on vacation in winter, it is very important to develop an optimal travel route.

France will make your vacation great at any time of the year. But especially the colorful French city becomes on Christmas eve.

In France a huge number of churches, perhaps the most interesting of them are the cathedrals: Chartres Cathedral, Notre Dame de Paris, the Strasbourg Cathedral, the Russian Orthodox Church in nice.

Artsci Cathedral, one of the first Gothic cathedrals of France, located just one hour drive from Paris. The first mentions of it date back to the 12th century. In the 13th century in the Cathedral had a major fire, resulting in most of the building burnt down, and this monument was completely rebuilt from scratch in the Gothic style. However, out of the fire managed to save one of the main shrines – “the tunic of the virgin Mary”, which since then is stored in the Cathedral Treasury.

Due to this incident we can admire the modest Romanesque Church, but a colossal Cathedral, a recognized masterpiece of Gothic art.

Another attraction Shatskogo Cathedral – an underground maze located under the main hall of the Cathedral. It is believed that he was created in ancient times by the ancient Celts who inhabited these lands.

The city of Chartres – the French capital of stained glass. After seeing the Cathedral, you will understand why. Numerous stained glass Windows that brought fame to the Cathedral, shimmering with all the colors of the rainbow and the secret of these bright colors still keep local glassblowers.

Notre-Dame de Paris, or Notre Dame, without exaggeration, can be called the most popular monument not only in Paris but throughout France. It was also built in ‘

‘The 12th century.

With the top sites of the Cathedral view is more breathtaking than the Eiffel Tower (Eiffel Tower is too high in order to see all parts of the city).

Most impressive are ugly fantastic creatures – gargoyles around the perimeter of the building. On the small square in front of the Cathedral is a kind of starting point distance throughout France – such as “kilometer zero”, like the one that is in Moscow to red square.

Strasbourg Cathedral was built on the Franco-German border, in the heart of the charming city of Strasbourg. The Strasbourg Cathedral is beautifully decorated and is especially renowned for its numerous Gothic statues. Inside it, visitors can also admire the cuckoo clock and Jesus with his disciples, appearing every hour.

The jewel of nice is rightly considered Russian Orthodox Cathedral, a small corner of old Moscow on the Mediterranean sea.
