Poor poland... you have many beautyful historical churchs, but this one is disgusting. Let me show another facade of the building:



Horroristic... this tympanum like some social-realist fantasy...

It was built between 1994 and 2004

I concur. The structure is very disproportionate, and kitschy.

^ Indeed, a lousy building. Pure waste of money, poor Poland. There's a nice neo Gothic church nearby, though.

Landshut, Germany - St. Martin

St. Martin's Church (Martinskirche) in Landshut, Bavaria - Germany

The tallest brick tower of the world (130,6m), 13th biggest church tower and 6th tallest of Germany.
It's the peak of the beautiful (UNESCO worthy), yet rather unknown old town of Landshut. The city has a population of ~62'000.

Great looking church. I like that the clock is only halfway up in that tower. Looks unique that way. It must have been extended several times thrue the years.




This is the tallest in sweden. Uppsala cathedral. 118,7m.

St Andreas basilica in Patras is probably the tallest in Greece, around 55 meters to the dome.

At 521ft (160m) the cathedral at Lincoln in England was supposedly the tallest building in the world from 1300 to 1549. It's thought that the spire on the central tower was 3ft higher than the Great Pyramid at Giza and was 110ft higher than the spire at Salisbury cathedral, but unfortunately it was destroyed during a storm in 1549 and not rebuilt.

This is what Lincoln cathedral looks like today! The central tower is still the tallest cathedral tower in Europe.

Sure with it being the tallest cathedral tower?
Cologne Cathedral's twin towers are both 157 metres high. And Cologne Cathedral is obviously a cathedral...

Wikipedia states, that Lincoln Cathedral's central tower is today 83 m tall.

But they have spires on top! I meant 'tower' as in 'tower without a spire or other structure'. The central tower at Lincoln is about 82 metres.

I stand to be corrected though

Hmm... I guess the towers of Cologne Cathedral are still higher, even without the spires.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any data about it, but if you compare the central turret of Cologne Cathdral, which is 109 metres high, with the towers, you can guess they would be at least 100 metres tall without spires.

I think you're right, but I still think Lincoln is the tallest cathedral tower in Europe without a spire

Yeah...your right as well, I think. XD
They should chop off the spires, so the towers would at least hold one record... *joking*
