Head up to the 36th floor for a spectacular view at sunset. If you are lucky, a glimpse of the board room on the 40th floor is something special.

We came to see the Cathedral of Learning because it was Slovak day there. Food, cloths, music, dancing, Christmas ornaments , cut glass, food, and more food, cookies, nut rolls, straw dolls, and just so much more. We were just in the real Slovakia this past Summer and we saw more here to buy than there. Tried to picture my mom making some of the food, now theirs was good, but you know .....no one could cook like your own mother. Went to see some of the nationally rooms there. I do remember going as a teenager there to spend the day, but for all there is to see in this one building you have got to be young and eager to walk and walk. A lot always going on there. My brother in law graduated from Pitt so he was our personal guide. It’s marvelous on the outside as well as on the inside.

You could take a guided tour, or simply poke your head into the various nationality rooms (as long as classes aren't in session). It's amazing that these rooms have been so well maintained over decades and decades. And the details in the woodwork and murals, etc. Well worth even a quick stop in just to see.

The Cathedral of Learning is an apt name for this gorgeous place. The grounds are beautiful and everything around there is worthy of visiting.
