Cathy - thanks for the recent input. I had never known that 'old St. Nick' was based on a
real person, much less a designated saint. Hope your sister enjoyed the alternate name :-)

Looking up the origin of my sister's name, Myra. So many churches these days are afraid to associate someone named St. Nick with Christmas. I've heard more that Christmas with good ole St. Nick was pagan. So I appreciate the increase to my knowledge base. I will tell Myra she is now Kale.

L.Joustra,
Glad you enjoyed it. We happened upon it by chance, and had no idea about
St. Nicholas and his history, but it was one of my favorite churches visited.

Thank you for giving me a very nice impression of what is left of the original burial place of St. Nicholas, the patron of our city Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Michael, Bartlett - Thanks so much for taking the time to write. You expressed what I
thought while there, wondering how it all looked during its time. Churches are often built
with pride and care, but the unusally rich mosaic-tile detailing was amazing to see.
One of the most beautiful churches I've entered. Glad you enjoyed it too, this way.

Excellent photos. I felt as if I were there. The beauty of the stone and craftsmanship are astounding. The colors are fantastic. I can only imagine what it looked like "in the day".
Thank you for the education and wonderful pictures.
