The Cathedral of Notre Dame of the Prince of Ho Chi Minh City, which was built in 1877 during the French colonial period, is also nicknamed the "Red Church" because of its red brick construction. It is the most famous landmark attraction in Ho Chi Minh City. The church is well-proportioned (modeled after Notre Dame Bell Tower in Paris), magnificent and magnificent, with two 40-metre-high bell towers soaring into the clouds. All the red bricks for church building came from France and have not faded at all (red bricks are directly exposed). On the garden square in front of the church stands a statue of the Virgin Mary weighing 4 tons, which was presented by the Roman Church in 1945. The Catholic Church is still in use today. On religious festivals and Sundays, many devout believers gather here for mass. There are many interesting graffiti on the exterior wall. Unfortunately, we don't have any correction fluid. We can only watch other people's secrets eagerly. Tickets - "Free Open Time - "8:00-11:00 weekdays, 15:00-16:00 tips - "Except for Mass and noon break, everyone can visit the church freely. It is recommended to stand next door at the central post office or the diamond square at the back door to take a panoramic view of the church.
Notre Dame Cathedral in Dresden, which was designed and built by the carpenter Master Org & Bell, took 17 years to build. It is the largest sandstone building in the world. Its dome, the so-called Stone Bell, is one of Dresden's symbols. The church was built on a square plan of 45 x 45 meters. By strengthening the spindle, people can easily distinguish a Greek cross. There are four inclined stairs at the four corners and a semicircular rear hall on the East side. The concave tower of Notre Dame's Church is 51 meters high, crowned with a so-called flame vase. The stone dome has a headlamp. Its Cross stands on the top of the church. It is 95 meters tall, huge in scale, exquisite and magnificent. It is the representative work of the western new church architecture. It is the landmark building of this ancient city and the most beautiful scenery of Dresden. Its Baroque style of architecture has become a model of Christian art and is praised as one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. As a symbol of the modern history of Germany and the world, the composer Bach and many other music and art masters have played in this church many times. At the end of World War II, after the Dresden air strike on February 15, 1945, the Church of Notre Dame finally collapsed because of the heat of the whole city. Only a 13-metre-high wall remains, which is the eternal pain of the war for the people of Dresden. Thus, it is not only John & Sebastian & Bach who has played the organ himself that has been destroyed. Only John Christian Figg's altar escaped. After 1945, the ruins of the church became a monument to war and destruction. In the 1980s, Notre Dame Cathedral was seen as a symbol of the East German Freedom Movement and a place for non-violent protests. After the reunification of Germany, Germany decided to rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral with the support of donations from Britain, America and other countries. From 1994 to 2005, Notre Dame Cathedral was used as a place of faith and hope. The rebuilding work took 11 years and cost 179 million euros. The rebuilt church is basically built as it is, and many relics have been carefully preserved and become part of the raw materials for church construction.
Notre Dame Cathedral has another more famous name because of its red appearance: "Red Cathedral". It is the most famous landmark building in Saigon. In the busiest and busiest part of Ho Chi Minh's city center, the Central Post Office has two views on its left, which is very convenient. The church opens at 8-11 a.m. and 2 p.m. When there is no mass in the church, the seats are partially enclosed. The church is very big and the roof is very high. If the church is full of people to do mass, it must be spectacular. We didn't have Mass time, so we could only visit the shrine at the entrance, which was very small. The flower windows of the shrine are exquisite and the atmosphere is solemn and calm. Sculpture and decoration are not the same, perfect in change. If you take a walk outside the church, you will get extra benefits. Your camera will get lots of beautiful girlfriends. Because there is a European flavor here, many couples will come here to take wedding photos, photographers will bring beautiful Vietnamese sister paper to take pictures here, too many sister paper, dazzling, you are interested in meeting here occasionally.
This church, located in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, was built between 1877 and 1883. It is the Cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of Ho Chi Minh City. It is a typical Gothic building and one of the landmarks of Ho Chi Minh City. The two 40-metre bell towers of the church follow the design of Notre Dame de Paris. All the raw materials are from France. The brick on the outer wall comes from Marseilles. So after more than a hundred years, the red brick has not faded at all. So the Church of Notre Dame is also called the "Red Cathedral". In front of the church stood the statue of the Virgin Mary as a gift from the Roman Church in 1945 - "5:30, 17:00 on weekdays, 5:30, 6:30, 7:30, 9:30, 16:00, 17:15, 18:30 on Sunday morning, in which the four Mass languages were English. Usually there are more tourists taking pictures in front of the image of the Virgin Mary in front of the church. They can try to stand at other angles, such as the central post office or the Diamond Square, with fewer prospects.
It is named for its use of red bricks. All the red bricks used in the construction were brought from France. Over the past hundred years, the color is still bright and there is no fading. Saigon is the most famous landmark building, because of the use of red bricks to build so named "Red Church", the construction of all the red bricks from France, more than a hundred years ago, the color is still bright, no fading. Following the design of Notre Dame Bell Tower in Paris, the church has a well-proportioned shape and is solemn and magnificent. The two towers are as high as 40 meters, reaching the sky. There is also a statue of the Virgin Mary weighing four tons in front of the church. The outer porch of the church is covered with exquisite sculptures, and the interior is surrounded by small prayer rooms. The shrines, sculptures and decorations of each room are different and perfect in the change.
Perhaps because of the French colonial relationship, Catholicism seems to be prevalent in Vietnam. Every city has a famous Catholic Church, and the most famous Catholic Church in Vietnam comes out of Hanoi, the other is Ho Chi Minh. Ho Chi Minh's Notre Dame Church of Saigon was built about 150 years ago. He is also the Cathedral of the Catholic Church of Ho Chi Minh City. The whole church is a typical Gothic building. It is said that all the raw materials are from France. Because the whole traffic system is made of red brick, it is also called the Red Church. It's also a must-see spot for Ho Chi Minh City's inbound tour. You can see the church about 900 meters along Nguyen Du Road from the Unified Palace. It's very eye-catching. The church is open to the outside world without admission tickets. The time is from 8:00 to 11:00 in the morning and from 15:00 to 16:00 in the afternoon. Mass is held every day at 5:30, 17:00 on weekdays, 5:30, 6:30, 9:30, 16:00, 17:15 and 18:30 on Sundays. If religious, it is suggested that a mass be held together. A Mass is about 1.5 hours. Vietnam's tourism is really a "leisurely" one. Don't rush too fast. It's totally no problem to set aside this one and a half hours. During Mass, my personal advice is not to take any more pictures. You can take a good picture after the mass. The interior decoration of the church is also more traditional Catholic style. The tall dome gives people a sense of reverence for the Holy Father when they are in it. All the glasses are colored glasses, which make up the stories in the Bible and deserve to be savored carefully. In addition, in front of the church, there is a statue of the Virgin Mary, which was presented by the Roman Church in 1945. So back to the Virgin Mary and take a picture of the whole church is the most complete. However, because it is a popular tourist spot, there are often too many buses and minibuses parked in front of the church, which is very eye-catching. There is really no other way to take a clean picture except to wait. Next to the church is the Central Post Office. These two scenic spots can be visited together.
The church is a typical Gothic building, symmetrical in shape, magnificent, reflecting the blue sky, white clouds and surrounding green trees and safflower, emitting a strong French flavor. There are two 40-metre-high bell towers on the front. The milky white spire soars into the sky. It imitates the design of Notre Dame in Paris. It can be seen from a distance that all the red bricks have been transported from France without fading after a hundred years. It happened that it was raining and it was being repaired and could not get in. Sorry!
If you come to Saigon, you must go to the Red Church. It may be because of the colonial relationship of France. Catholicism is very popular in Vietnam. Almost every city has a famous church, and the Red Church is Saigon's most famous landmark building, typical Gothic architecture. Imitating the design of Notre Dame Bell Tower in Paris, the Red Cathedral is symmetrical and magnificent. There is an open lawn in front of the church. Occasionally, several pigeons stop to look for food. The overall color of the red church is ruddy. It is said that all the red bricks for building the church came from France. Over the past hundred years, the color of the church is still bright and has not faded. From a distance, there is a sense of being in Europe. The church is solemn in a twinkling of an eye.

Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the landmarks of Ho Chi Minh City. It is located in the center of the city. It is just beside the central post office. It is surrounded by a large forest. The weather of 32 degrees is comfortable and not hot at all. In Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, I met prayers, graduate photographers, and couples holding hands to listen to the bells.
The Red Church, Saigon's must-go place, went in without tickets but closed earlier. It was said that all the bricks were airlifted from France to build it. When Vietnamese college students took graduation photographs, they felt that the church would still ring a bell at a certain point. Opposite the church, the Central Post Office would walk for three minutes.
