Qingdao Catholic Church


Qingdao Catholic Church once named St. Michaels Cathedral (written as 圣弥厄尔教堂 or 圣爱弥尔教堂 in Chinese), was designed by the German designer Arthur Bialucha and inherited from Gothic and Roman architectural style. The church was planned to be built into a height of 100 meters. However, since the outbreak of the World War II, Hitler banned the outflow of German capital. As a result, the plan of the church had to be modified and here came its present scale. The construction of this church was begun in 1932 and completed in 1934. With a height of 56 meters, this church had been the tallest building in Shandong Province before the New China was founded. It is also the only consecration church in China.
