York Minster (Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter), York, England

These are two photos of York Minster, a Gothic cathedral in York, England, one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. The minster has a very wide decorated Gothic nave and chapter house, a Perpendicular Gothic choir and east end and early English north and south transepts. The nave contains the West Window, constructed in 1338, and over the Lady Chapel in the east end is the Great East Window, (finished in 1408), the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. In the north transept is the Five Sisters Window, each lancet being over 16 metres high. The south transept contains a famous rose window.
