A walk through Utrecht • How Europe gained her soul

The tour of Utrecht: in search of Europe's soul, begins on the Domplein. Here we see evidence, direct or indirect of the conversion of the Romans, Egyptians, Franks, Irish, Anglo-Saxons, Friesians, Germanic tribes and the Vikings! Different monuments and buildings in Utrecht lead us from the Roman times through church history, showing us the impact of Christianity on the development of Europe as a continent.   (Download the map of Utrecht and also the brochure with explanation of the places of interest.)
