Dom Tower is the tallest church tower in the Netherlands at 112.5 meters in height. It was part of St. Martin’s Cathedral, and is considered the symbol of Utrecht. Dom Tower was completed around 1321 while the cathedral was still under construction. Due to a lack of funds, the church was never completed. The unfinished nave then collapsed around 300 years ago during a tornado, converting Dom Tower into a freestanding tower. The Tower and its surrounding buildings are portrayed using minimalistic color blocks, and the seemingly hand-painted style around the windows further elevate the design. The details in the architecture represent the unique characteristics and thoughtful design of Gothic architecture. “UTRECHT DOMTOREN,” written on the bottom of the print, is Dutch for “Utrecht Tower.” If you climb to the top on a clear day, you can see Amsterdam and Rotterdam in the distance.
