Wooden Skyscraper Tower.

This 38-meter tall "skyscraper" in Arkhangelsk city is made from wood:

It is a wooden multi-stored building. It looks like a real skyscraper in Arkhangelsk city. All the houses in the town are mainly two- three- stored and here it stands - a twelve stored wooden tower, more than 120 ft high (38 metres).

There is not elevator and you can reach the top of the building climbing by a carved wooden stairs.

The building can be seen from all the town. The city authorities claim that the building spoils the town view and demand to reduce it by… 10 stores. But he refuses. He really likes his creation and most of the local people think that it looks nice.


Well St Georges, Georgetown, a wooden cathedral of about the same height, has been standing for 110 years so I think this one has a decent chance of being solid, provided it's built well.

great picture.

if you do a search for "surdesti church" you can see the Romanian church (UNESCO protected monument) that was for a long time the tallest wooden building in Europe. Apart from that is a really nice building.
