^^ The church in Căușeni was so low because was in Southern Bessarabia and was built during the period when the area was Ottoman possession. According to Ottoman rules, churches shouldn't not be taller than a man on a horse.

This is how churches in Bulgaria built during that period look, as well as in other Balkan countries.

Bydgoszcz Cathedral, Poland​



Parts of the building date back to middle of the 15th century, and the exterior is worthy of more plaudits than many comparable churches, but what really sets this church apart from the rest is its glorious interior.
Painted between 1922 and 1925 by Henryk Jackowski, the polychrome masterpiece has its roots in the modernist ideas of the Młoda Polska (Young Poland) art movement, who aimed to present a truly Polish vision of the world and who did a truly remarkable job of it here.​

In 1321 Lithuanian troops almost completely destroyed the building. It lay in ruins nearly 600 years, until 1909, until it was restored by architect A. Shchusev, honored for his work title of Academician. The paintings in the temple are by a famous artist Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin. After centuries preserved some old Kievan Rus frescoes.

St. Barbara's Church, Kutná Hora, Czech Republic​



It is one of the most famous Gothic churches in central Europe and it is a UNESCO world heritage site. St Barbara is the patron saint of miners (among others), which was highly appropriate for a town whose wealth was based entirely upon its silver mines.
Construction began in 1388, but because work on the church was interrupted several times, it was not completed until 1905.​
