Grotekerkplein 27, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 3011 GC
Designed in the late-Gothic style of architecture, Sint Laurenskerk is the only surviving remnant of the Medieval city of Rotterdam. Set amid the contemporary Rotterdam's urban sprawl, the historic church has come to be a symbol of the city's resilience in the face of hardship. The church was originally constructed between 1449 and 1525, with few alterations since. During World War II, Sint Laurenskerk was severely damaged by the bombing of May 14, 1940, and for a time lay neglected, its stately structure buckling from within. Instead of being demolished, however, the church was restored in 1968 at the behest of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. Today, Sint Laurenskerk continues to celebrate mass and also hosts concerts, lectures and other events. Inside, a permanent exhibition tells the tale of the church through several individual stories with the aid of modern media. Guided tours of the tower are also organized as well.
