    If it weren’t for the chandelier, the perspective on that photo would be really interesting- put your hand over the chandelier, and it all turns inside-out!
    I give you “Schinkenbrot”… just a word I like!

    As an aside………….. and I know this might be a stupid question here but what, architecturally speaking, is the differentiation between a Cupola and a Dome?

    just asking.

    Seeing as you asked…

    A cupola is a small dome. A dome might be topped by a cupola. A cupola won’t have a dome on top of it.
