One can hardly argue about the importance of the Vatican in the Christian world. The headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church and home to the Pope, it unites millions of people worldwide. Millions of travelers and locals regularly visit Vatican City to listen to the Pope addressing and worshiping the God.
Many visitors, however, travel long distances to just admire the historical and cultural heritage of the Vatican. From Michelangelo’s masterpieces to Raphael’s beautiful paintings, the place owns some of the biggest treasures of art.
I couldn’t stop admiring and photographing everything while walking down long galleries of the Vatican Museums. The Vatican definitely enriches your aesthetic view and the way you look at the art.
Words can’t describe your feelings when you stare in awe at Michelangelo’s fresco The Last Judgment. Goosebumps cover your skin when you think about history and stories behind these masterpieces. You feel like a lucky intruder who gets one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see all this beauty and snap countless photos to remember this culture-infused visit for years to come.
