'Beautiful decorated Catholic church from the late 19th century.'
This 19th century Catholic church looks from the outside some bleak. But the inside is worth a visit. There is plenty to see.

Our review of St. Nicolaaskerk
One of the few Roman Catholic churches in Amsterdam. Most churches in Amsterdam are Protestant and therefore sober, so there is little to see inside. Not so at the St. Nicholas Church. The Church was built in the late 19th century and is still actively used for religious purposes.
Enough to see inside
Walked from the Central Station you cannot miss the Church on your left. The St. Nicholas Church has one large and two smaller towers. From the outside the church looks some bleak, but inside it is richly decorated, so there is plenty to see. You see, among other things, a beautiful Dome, a beautiful organ, and various paintings on the wall.
