  • Just a couple of days ago on business turned out to be right at the Shuhovskoj Tower. Until then, many had heard and read that the Tower collapses, is about to fall, and so on. Actually no particular news is and has not been any construction from metal-if it's just not the Delhi pillar-needs repair and restoration and protection from rust. The more such a completely unique creation as the Shukhov Tower. But in my understanding, the restoration should not include some elements that did not exist previously. And THEY were included in this perfect hyperboloid. Inside the tower is built to greater heights some metal columns that actually support the Tower from destruction. I cannot judge whether possible other ways to keep construction-it is worth the same Eiffel Tower and even longer worth than Shukhov, but to my regret once again turned out to be such a polunovodel. So I invite all to look at least this version-until the inflatable Tower did not.

  • Shukhov tower was designed to be a brilliant inventor, architect, engineer and scientist Vladimir Grigorievich Shukhov. A brilliant scientist, hardly anyone knows, and he is the author of oil pipelines. And his monument to be put on Sretensky Boulevard in Moscow, opposite to the oil company. This tower still cannot restore our excellent architects. The Shabolovka Tower is, it can be seen from the Metro. However, approach her close. I advise you all to come and see this architectural masterpiece.

  • be at the Shabolovka Tower and don't see impossible. This braided incredibly handsome and graceful Spire! especially at evening illumination. Environment of the Soviet pjatietazhek and industrial buildings with concrete walls-of course spoil the overall look. Yes and the tower itself is closed to visit fence. But it is a historical place and the only thing that pleases the eye in this area!

  • the highest tower designed by Shukhov. After last year scandal about plans of disassembly and moving it to VDNKH that would high probably lead to destruction of the tower, it was enforced by steel tubes and antennas were removed.
  • great!!
  • One of not so many unique towers of Shukhov
  • After the death of two workers (summarized) Šuhovu sentenced to the death penalty and lived with him until he was 85 years old, because her finish no one else could
