You should add to the list this one - Bazylika Mariacka in Gdańsk, Poland.
The largest brick church in the world

Does anybody know the intended look and height of the Gdansk cathedral? The tower looks rather unfinished and i imagine that it would have been among the tallest churches in the world had the tower been completed in the way they started it (considering the width and shape of the existing tower).

Really ? I've always heard that Albi's cathedral is the world's largest brick church.
Well, that doesn't really matter

I suppose there are different ways to measure it and different sources...

St. Domnius cathedral in Split, is unofficially smallest and oldest cathedral in the world, if not by consecration, then by old building from which it took function - emperor Diocletian's mausoleum from the 3rd century. In the crypt below the cathedral, there is another small church!

Interior is rather tiny, but very intriguing. Romanesque / gothic bell tower is 60 meters high, and was restored and modified in 19th century.

Here's the cross section made by french arhitects in 19th century:



Cathedral today:

We could consider it like a sort of Cathedral of the whole Catholic Church in some way, but it is not the Cathedral of Rome

Rome's official Cathedral is San Giovanni in Laterano

Olomouc is in "Tsjechië" .
Brno and Plzeň can be added to the list from Czech Rep.
Košice is the ultimate winner for Slovakia.
