Give a list of tallest structures of different kind for your country!

Let us give a list of the tallest structures of different kind for your country.
If the actual tallest of one kind is not the tallest of this kind, that existed in your country, than mention this in brackets. Please use as much categories as possible, but only those for which exist adaquate structures in other country ( skyscraper mixed use is for example not a good category).
The categories I choose for the following list for Germany are a good choice, as most of the structure mentioned there may exist in all countries.

The following is the list for Germany. Please try to find the corresponding tallest for your country ( for many structural types it is very easy for others not)

The Wikipedia Lists are from another type. They give the tallest structures of the countries ordered by descending height. The list at the beginning of this thread gives the tallest of different construction type for Germany. Compare with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...res_in_Germany to see the difference.
