Fulda residents call the Cathedralof Christ the Saviour an "exact copy" of the St. Peter’s Cathedral inthe Vatican. This is an exaggeration, of course, although the cathedral is actuallyvery similar to its "elder brother": even the statue of St. Peter isthe same. Moreover, like in Rome, here the feet of the bronze saint are alsobright finished by pilgrims. The temple was built from 1704 to 1712.
The Cathedralof Christ the Saviour houses the tombs of Fulda founders - St. Boniface andSturm, who built the Frauenberg Monastery, as well as of other famous people -bishops, kings, aristocrats. The cathedral is decorated according to the canonsof the Catholic art: massive bell towers, solemn sculptures, large windows,carvings of dark wood. There are clocks on both towers of the cathedral. Theyare different: one is a sun clock, and the other - mechanical. Photos of the cathedralwith these towers are considered the landmark of Fulda. Besides the church,there is also a cathedral museum (Dommuseum) here, which contains exhibits beingimportant for the history of Fulda and German Catholicism. For example, here youcan find the knife which Saint Boniface’s head was stuck by a villain in 754,and also the very head of the saint, revered by pilgrims.
