The towers are 93 meters high, the dome 54 meters. Within it is shining because of lots of glass, what produces a another picture at each beam. Within there are very beautiful wall paintings, some are very recent. In the church itself is one of the largest organs of Europe, it has 11000 pipes and 166 registers. In the summer months operas and ballet shows take place in front of the church.
