I think Gothic is not the right term since it's a medieval architecture style. Honestly, to me it looks like Art Nouveau/Deco with a tinge of neo-Gothic elements maybe.

"Surround" means more or less "encircle". You could say that Chicago is "surrounded by suburbs", but any which suburb would be described as "near Chicago".

Since not everyone posting here is in a city, "Amazing places near you" would be a more inclusive subject.

Ah ok, pensavo volessi dirmi che è gotico perché Dario Argento ci ha girato un film.
