    st. peter and st. paul's church

    Favorite thing: when you arrive in oostende you can see the twin towers of this impressive church. this neogothical church was built in 1904-1905. the use of sandstone sets it apart from other churches in the province of west-flanders that are mostly entirely built with bricks. inside the church is the mausoleum for belgium's first queen louise-marie who died in oostende in 1850. the stained-glass windows show the portraits of different belgian kings

    Favorite thing: The Saint Peter and Paul-Church is the main church of Oostende. The neo-gothic style of the church became a fact after the fire in the former church on 14 August 1896. The architect Delacenserie got inspired of the Cathedral of Cologne. The sculptor Jan Baptist van Wint created the statues on the frontage from the Apostles Peter, Paul and the Virgin Mary.
