The dome of the St. Paul's Cathedral in London is the second largest in the world, only the St. Peter in Rome is bigger. We walked to the top and enjoyed the view. Afterwards we could go up even higher via a scary castiron spiral stair. But because I convinced Marko to go along, I had to go all the way to the top. A little bit sick from the height I reached the top for a small walk around. Luckily the stairs down were found very quick.

The dome of the St. Paul's Cathedral has three galleries: the Whispering Gallery, the Stone Gallery and the Golden Gallery. The dome is 108 meters high, weighs 67.000 tons and has steel rods so it doesn't fall apart. The construction of the cathedral was completed in 1710. During the second world war it was hit by a bomb, but the damage was minimal. Although most marriages of the royal family are performed in Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral was used fot the marriage of prins Charles and lady Diana.

Below are the pictures we took of the St. Paul's Cathedral in London
