At first, I thought that there was just one cathedral in Paris but of course not. Notre Dame is the main roman catholic cathedral, but there are other branches of catholicism as well as orthodoxy. In the end, it seems there are ten of them!

Maybe instead of having two questions about Naples you could replace one with Neman (river that flows through Belarus, Lithuania and Russia), Nizhny Novgorod (major city and the centre of the river tourism in Russia) or Novaya Zemlya (archipelago where Soviets tested the most powerful atomic bomb in history)?
