St. Hedwigs-Kathedrale (St. Hedwig's Cathedral) Review

The green-patina dome belongs to St. Hedwigskathedrale. Begun in 1747, it was modeled after the Pantheon in Rome, and was the first Catholic church built in resolutely Protestant Berlin since the 16th-century Reformation. It was Frederick the Great's effort to appease Prussia's Catholic population after his invasion of Catholic Silesia (then Poland). A treasury lies inside.
