Utrecht is a city in the Netherlands. It has about 290,000 inhabitants[1] and a university. It is the fourth largest city in the country. One of the main sights is the Domkerk, a cathedral that was built between 1321 and 1382.[2] In of a storm in 1674, part of the cathedral was destroyed. This part was never rebuilt, so now the tower is separate from the rest of the church.
