Photographer's Note

Lübeck is sometimes called a town of seven spires. My previous photo showed St Marien Church, here you see a blue hour view of the Lubeck Cathedral (Dom zu Lübeck). You can see more of the spires in my previous photos from this town:

It is interesting to realise various meanings of the word Dom which in many languages translates as cathedral. Supposedly derived from the Latin Dominus Deo optimo maximo, abbreviated D.O.M., Latin for "to the Greatest and Best God". Interestingly, English dome refers to “a rounded vault forming the roof of a building or structure, typically with a circular base”. So the Lubeck Dom does not have a dome. In Polish, dom means house.
