Tips from locals
In a modern style, features tapered format with 106 meters in diameter, outer 75 metres high, 64 metres internal height and ability to 20000 people standing. The beauty of the building, on straight lines and sober, is due to the torn colored stained-glass Windows in the walls until the Summit.

Enormous church with an amazing architecture, looking like a space craft (or something like that).
