Kiev TV Tower
Facts
- The tallest free-standing metal structure in the world.
- The method of construction was very unique in that it was built from " The Top Down", unlike the CN tower or any other tall structure in the world, it was built without using cranes or helicopters.
- The structure is also unique in that there are no bolts or rivets holding it together, every joint, pipe and fixture was welded and X-rayed.

PICS?
