  • 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!

  • Engineer for the first time in world practice Shuhov invented use rotational hyperboloid in construction. He designed the Tower broadcasting in Šabolovki district in Moscow. At the beginning of the 20th century this place was considered suburbs, but now it is quite close to the Center. Unlike the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris design Shukhov low material and grace. The tower is perfectly visible immediately after leaving the underground "Shabolovskaya". The impression that the Tower has in recent years strengthened the vertical tubes, and it is somewhat lost in grace.

  • 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
