In the Kiev TV Tower

Posted on May 29, 2012 by team


The TV tower is the world highest lattice structure – the tower height is 385 m. While the construction not a single bolt or a rivet were used. All the details were fastened by welding. The building process took 5 years – 1968-73 and it was quite unusual. The tower was not built from bottom upwards but on the contrary – from the top downwards. The ready construction was lifted and other parts were put under it.

The Kiev tower is 3 times lighter and 60 m higher than the Eiffel one. The overall height is 385 m. There functions a small elevator inside lifting people up to 192 m. It’s considered to be storey 11. The landscape outside is dull..

The rooms inside the tower require cosmetic repair. Some abandoned halls remind of horror movies. Only up to 6 persons work simultaneously in the tower.

    when it falls down from lack of maintenance and there in no TV or radio in Kiev, someone will whine, “It is the last administration’s fault” but no one will see or hear them.
