Very tall structures of unknown height[edit]

There are some facilities in Russia and other parts of former Soviet Union, which may use permanent man-made structures taller than 250 metres. As some of them are of military importance, obviously no height data are available of them, but as similar facilities in other countries have such tall structures it is very presumeale that they have. These facilities are among other:

If one could find out the height of the mentioned structures, then put them in the upper list, if the height is greater than 250 metres.

Tall structures characteristic for former Soviet Union[edit]

There are several types of tall structures, which were either only or mainly built in former Soviet Union.

Stalinistic skyscrapers[edit]

Skyscrapers built during Stalin's last years (1947–1953) in an elaborate combination of Russian Baroque and Gothic styles ( see Seven Sisters (Moscow)). Similar buildings less tall were built in several other cities in former Soviet Union.

Moscow State University Moscow 787 ft 240 m 1953
Hotel Ukraine Moscow 650 ft 198 m 1955
Building on Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Moscow 577 ft 176 m 1952
Ministry of Foreign Affairs Moscow 564 ft 172 m 1953
Kudrinskaya Square Moscow 525 ft 160 m 1954
Hotel Leningradskaya Moscow 446 ft 136 m 1953
Red Gate Square Moscow 436 ft 133 m 1953

Guyed Masts with crossbars[edit]

Between 1960 and 1965 in several cities in Russia and Ukraine guyed masts with crossbars running from the mastbody to the guys were built. All these masts are exclusively used for UHF-/VHF-transmission ( mainly FM-/TV-transmission) and have a closed tubular mast body.
