In the 15th century, a new 134 meters high tower was build and it made the St Elizabeth Church one of the tallest buildings in the world. Unfortunately, the wooden top of the tower collapsed in 1529. Despite all the damage, Wrocław took during World War 2, church remained in perfect condition. Sadly in 1976, the church was burnt down completely.
