I always appreciate interesting architecture. Unfortunately, in a country as young as Canada, we don't have many buildings that compare with the ornate palaces and churches that you find in Europe.
However, if you look carefully, you will notice a few gems among the strip malls and gas stations. I have always admired this Serbian Church on Tecumseh Road for its unusual striped brickwork.
I have not been inside but am told it is very beautiful with frescoes adorning the walls. The priest lives next door and would be happy to let you inside.
I was surprised that the Detroit Institute of Arts is located in such a beautiful old building right in the heart of downtown Detroit. It is very close to the Fox Theatre, Detroit Science Center and Imax Theatre, and Comerica Park where the Tigers play baseball.
The DIA advertises that it holds a varied collection from "mummies to Matisse". The museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays and offers free guided tours. The address is 5200 Woodward Ave and the suggested admission is $4.
