  • HEARTS OF OAK 🌳 Today, British oaks from some of the UK’s most famous estates could contribute towards the rebuilding of Notre Dame cathedral, following an offer from members of Historic Houses.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
So far more than one hundred donor estates, including @doddingtonhall , Hutton-in-the-Forest, @SconePalace, @Castle_Howard, @HolkhamEstate, @PowderhamCastle and @FirlePlace (named after the Anglo-Saxon word for ‘oak woodland’), have volunteered valuable trees, planted for timber centuries ago, as a gift from the UK to France for the restoration of the iconic landmark’s roof, destroyed by fire earlier this week.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Given that the construction of the original roof in the twelfth century is estimated to have required 1,300 mature oaks, the donors are well aware that their contribution could only provide a fraction of what’s needed, but they hope the gesture will inspire others.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
James Birch, owner of @DoddingtonHall, one of the estates that has pledged timber, and President of Historic Houses, said, ‘The fire at Notre Dame is a terrible tragedy. It is also a reminder of how our great buildings provide a cultural back drop to everyday life that is often only recognised when they are threatened.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
The trees, from sustainable forestry and already destined for use as commercial timber, are estimated to have a combined market value of well over £100,000.
⁣⁣⁣
The Duke of Rutland, who first suggested it to other @Historic_Houses members said: ‘The trees in the original roof at Notre Dame probably started growing over a thousand years ago. We’re able to donate replacements because my great-great-grandfather had the foresight to plant trees that would only be valuable long after he died. And in turn we’ll replant every tree we fell – someone will need them for something in another few hundred years. It’s a reminder of how important it is to both look after and renew our heritage resources. In our business you have to plan in centuries, not years.’ ⁣

  • Ubicada dentro del recinto del Castillo de Praga, la Catedral de San Vito es el templo católico más importante de la ciudad y el mejor ejemplo del estilo gótico en la capital checa.
Oficialmente recibe el nombre de Catedral de San Vito, San Wenceslao y San Adalberto, pero es más conocida simplemente como Catedral de Praga.
Su construcción comenzó en 1344.
Fue erigida sobre las ruinas de un antiguo templo románico dedicado al mártir San Vito, advocación que mantiene hoy en día junto con la de los santos Wenceslao y Adalberto.
El diseño sigue el estilo gótico francés imperante en la época, aunque como la construcción se alargó durante siglos, con el tiempo se incluyeron otros estilos diferentes.
Uno de los elementos más destacados es la Puerta Dorada o Portal Dorado en la Fachada Sur, con una representación de 80 metros cuadrados del Juicio Final sobre mosaicos dorados y rojos.
Por su parte la Fachada Oeste es la más antigua de todas, en ella destaca el rosetón central de estilo neogótico.
Flanqueando la entrada hay dos torres gemelas de 80 metros de altura, desde ellas se obtienen unas estupendas vistas del Castillo de Praga con el casco histórico a sus pies.
Hay una tercera torre aún más alta, llegando hasta los 99 metros. En su interior se conserva la campana Zikmund, la más grande de la República Checa.
Por último, uno de los elementos más representativos de la Catedral de San Vito son las hermosas vidrieras que decoran sus paredes y llenan de luz el interior del recinto.
A través de ellas se cuenta la historia de la República Checa, recién independizada del Imperio Austrohúngaro.#prague #praha #praga #pictureoftheday #beautiful #architecture #trip #streetphotography #shooting #photographer #instagood #cathedral #sanvito

  • What do we live in a backward world. I just couldn't believe it. 
In 12 hours, more than 700 million euros have been raised to restore the Notre Dame. It is one of the most popular monuments of the French capital, but it is nothing more than a building! made of stone, wood etc.

While the entire world looks at Notre Dame Cathedral, an average of 200 kilos of plastic per second is dumped into the sea every day.

Still, an average of 8,500 children die of hunger every day. And the ice in the North Pole melts terribly quickly.

Every day an average of 41,000 girls marry who have not even reached the age of 18.

Every day we have a refugee problem

There is still no cure for various deadly diseases that make victims every day.

Do I have to continue ... I have given up hope in this world for a long time. And this event only reinforces this.

Let us worry about the future, about what we leave to our children, about what we are and what we want to be.

700 million could have been invested in preserving this planet. What good is Notre Dame, when the world slowly dies away.

So I just wanted to say that.

  • A New Jersey man was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral carrying two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, the New York Police Department said, just days after flames ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.⁣⠀
