Sint Nicolaaskerk,


Prins Hendrikkade 73, 1012 AD
Noord-Holland
Netherlands

The church was consecrated on February 7, 1887 and on March 30 the Blessed Sacrament was taken across town from the conventicle to the new church in a splendid procession.
The new church of St Nicholas is among the better known of the new Amsterdam churches. The tall and spacious building occupies a prominent place in the city centre, opposite the Central Station, and is a rare example of the neo-Baroque style. Most new Roman Catholic Churches, in Holland as well as in other European countries, were built in the neo-Gothic style promoted by Viollet-le-Duc in France, Pugin in England and Cuypers in Holland. Neo-Gothic architecture referred back to the heyday of medieval French Catholicism and its world-famous cathedrals. Therefore, it is all the more remarkable that the architects of the church of St Nicholas based themselves largely on the international Baroque style
