As you can see, this is an impressive beautiful cathedral in the small town of Skara in the Swedish landscape Västergötland.
I wonder if anyone know the height of it (info needed for the diagram)?

Really beautiful church, looks more like France than Skara! I would guess it's around 70 m, but I've mailed the church and asked :)

Thanks, Atlantica! I guess 75 meters.

I've got the answer now. Skara Domkyrkas towers are 65,5 m tall and were built in 1894. There have been a cathedral on the same place since the 10th or 11th century, but the church of today was built between 1886-1894 by the famous Helgo Zetterwall :)

I copied the text and info to the diagram. A little bit sad it wasn't at least 75m tall, but it is 10m taller than Lund's domkyrka.
Thank you so much for finding this info! :)
Do you want to draw this? If you want to do that I see no need to draw it myself.

The Skara cathedral looks like the Neo-Gothic, Johannes Cathedral in Helsinki designed by Adolf Melander in 1888 :
The towers are 74 metres in height.

@Najtskaj: I can draw it, but I won't do it right now. Feel free to do it if you want to :)

that's a nice church!

I'll also wait I have a lot of drawing projects listed(and of course a lot of other things).
I just discovered Johannes Church via the diagram so it's a coincidence that you posted this(very nice) one.
