Pisa Tower Dropped to 2nd Placing

The Leaning Tower of Pisa (the name which has been given long time ago) has been drawing lots of visitors to their leaning tower.

Of late, a challenge came from a church steeple in Germany.

And according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the tower in the small village of Suurhusen in northwestern Germany leans more than the famous tower in Pisa in Italy.

They say Pisa's tower tilts at an angle of 3.97 degrees, whereas the tower in Suurhusen leans at 5.07 degrees. As of today, the tower in Suurhusen is ranked no. 1. Frankly, who wants their building to be tilting and challenge for the no. 1 ranking. (source: Reuters)
