Nikolaikirche, Stralsund

Until well into the 15th century the Marienkirche of Lübeck was imitated many times along the Baltic coast. One of the first such churches was that of Nikolaikirche (St. Nicholas church) in Stralsund, part of which was built during construction of the Marienkirche.

In the interior of the church, the passage between arcades and clerestory was given a wooden parapet decorated in brilliant colours, as was the clerestory base, the dividing walls, the arcades, and the columns.

The photo shows the south aisle and nave.
