I think that almost all of you have a strong believe in a God, however you name it. I am sure that this believe makes us more human, as no other creature on the Earth has such believes. This is for sure one major diference between human and animals.

That’s why I don’t miss any occasion to step in a church. Old or new, big or small, this a very peaceful thing for myself. I  have visited a lot of churches, and I loved them all. Thinking of them, and trying to evaluate them, some of them can seem very spectacular to any viewer. Here are the most spectacular and impressive churches in my opinion, and I hope that this is not a blasphemy making such classification.
