BAMBERG CATHEDRAL

Bamberg Cathedral bears the title of a unique landmark of medieval German Romanesque cathedral architecture for a good reason.

 

The Cathedral has two richly decorated entrances — the door of Adam and the door of the Kings. The door of Adam is decorated with six huge statues. Statues of Adam, Eve and Peter stand on the right. Statues of St. Stephen, Emperor Henry II and St. Cunigunde stand on the left.

 

The most notable element of the cathedral is the equestrian statue called the Bamberg Horseman. Scientists were unable to establish a character immortalized in this figure so far. No other medieval sculpture has been given so many hypothetical names as the Bamberg Horseman.

 

The Bamberg cathedral is a good example of Middle Ages architecture and a great creation of German architects.
