The Longest House in the World is from Ukraine: Over 3700 Meter Long

Posted on August 22, 2018 by tim


This is the longest house in ex-USSR, Europe and in the World too – at least that’s what they say in the records book. This is a residential complex in the Ukrainian city of Lutsk.

Its total length, if measured from end to end, is a shocking 1750 meters, or over one mile, long.



But if you add up all its twists and turns, you get the number of 3760 meters – this is its total length.



The building has over 120 entrances and there are over 9000 (sic!) people living in its apartments.




In fact, this building is forty different buildings – from five to nine stores tall – all joined together in one super-building.


Its construction was started in 1969 and ended in 1980! It took eleven years to finish.

This fourteen-second drone video clip shows it from above:

Local people call it “The Great Chinese Wall”: to go from one of its ends to the other you have to ride a bus for a few stops.

Interestingly enough, not all the people living in this house realize that it is the longest residential building in the world – there is no marking on the building itself to inform the inhabitants.

Also, every delivery man in town has a story about how he couldn’t find an address here.

    Why don’t you get someone who understands English to write your articles ?

    If the entire building is not loose through its entire length, it can not be considered as a contiguous building!

  3. Douglas says:

    Another upscale favela. Living in this place would be mind numbing. The saving grace is that Russians are used to it or are they?

  4. Jim Beam says:

    Bottom view of the building looks like a gigantic organic chemistry formula!

    Good evening,
    You are wrong, the longest buildin on the world is “Prora”, Nazi building in Germany! 4.5 km! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prora

    • wm says:

      Prora was meant to be an hotel, so Prora is not residential.
      And Prora was never finished, only 2,5km has been build.

  6. Vladimir says:

    Yes, You are right

  7. Nic says:

    You guys must have a different definition of “residential”.

    This is an apartment complex. It’s not built for one family, which is obvious when you look at the building.

  8. Douglas says:

    In Russia and nearby states, the usual word for apartment building is ”house”. It does seem odd but that’s the way they say it.
