Looking at the Tashkent Tower I imagined that a little bit more and it will take and fly like a rocket) my favorite is Eiffel Tower, think that it is very beautiful.

The Florianturm (Florian Tower, Florian for short) is a landmark of Dortmund (Germany). It is named after Florian, the patron saint of gardeners.

The Florianturm is the TV tower of Dortmund and was built in 1959 as an attraction for a federal horticultural show with a height of 219.6 metres. At the time it was briefly the highest freestanding structure in Germany.

I've always wondered whether it was possible to hit the tower's core while bungee-jumping?
