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.
