Nevyansk Tower
Do you think that the leaning tower is only in Pisa? In Russia, you can also look at such a miracle.

In the Sverdlovsk region in the city of Nevyansk there is a local sight - the inclined tower, built in the 1720s. The height of the tower is 57.5 meters, and the deviation to the side is about 1.85 meters.

The construction has four tiers and several floors, and it is crowned with a metal spire with a weather vane, which is grounded.

The Nevyansk Tower was not inclined due to the whim of the architect and philanthropist Akinfiy Demidov, who allegedly dreamed of repeating the architectural feat of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The fact is that its foundation sank because of groundwater, and the builders had to contrive and complete the saber structure at an angle.

Maybe, you know any other leaning towers?
