WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., June 26 (UPI) -- A California-based Web site has ranked the "Top Five Leaning Buildings and Monuments Not in Pisa," including a German church and an Estonian museum.
VirtualTourist.com said while Italy's leaning tower of Pisa may be the most famous of off-kilter buildings, it is certainly not alone in the category.
Germany's Oberkirche church in the town of Bad Frankenhausen is believed to lean two extra inches each year, giving it an even greater slant than Pisa. Meanwhile, Estonia's Tartu Art Museum bears a heavy slant from being built over the remnants of an old town wall and Garisenda Tower in Bologna, Italy, bears such an impressive slant that Dante name-dropped the structure in his "Divine Comedy."
Rounding out the top five "not in Pisa" leaning structures were the Puerta de Europa, or KIO Towers, in Madrid, which are so slanted that only employees are allowed inside and the Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan in Perak, Malaysia.
