Magyarország legmagasabb épületei | Tallest structures in Hungary

On which towers and highrise buildings in Hungary exist observation decks open for tourists? The only structure in Hungary I know for sure with an observation deck is Miskolc TV Tower, but it is with a total height of 72 metres not a very tall structure.

The tallest building in Hungary is the television tower on Lakihegy, but I think it hasn't got an observation deck on it.
Well, in Szeged you can visit the tower of Dóm, but it's also not very high, the level that tourists can visit is just 68 m, while the full height is ~93 m. The water tower on Szt István square is also visitable. Height ~42 m. Full tower height 54 m.

Let's not forget the TV tower of Pécs which is very-very tall, though the observation deck is not on the top. Plus the whole thing is on a hill, it offers an excellent view of the city.

The TV-"tower" of Lakihegy is just a steel frame. The highest from the surroundings is probably the one either above Pécs or Miskolc.

If you have friends at Antenna Hungary you can climb up pretty high on the 178m tall weather-observation and TV-tower on Kekesteto (1014m) in Matra Mountains. Otherwise you can have a snack in the ring-restaurant or look around from the observation deck open for tourists at 134m. This is actually the absolute highest tourist spot in Hungary.

Kekesteto TV Tower has an intersting feature. Its antenna mast is guyed to the ground. It may be the only partially guyed tower with a restaurant!

Lakihegy Tower is a mast radiator for LF-/MF-transmission and not a TV Tower. It is under high voltage when transmitter is operated!
But it has an impressionant basement insulator!

The height of observation deck on Kekesteto TV Tower may be 34 metres and not 134 metres! There must be a type mismatch!

Talking AJ17001

The Air Jordan 17was released February 9, 2002. This was the first shoe released since Jordan’s 2nd return to the NBA playing for the Washington Wizards. The first color to release matched their jersey.Jordan is BACK!For a while, those who talked about a 3rd coming of Jordan were thought to be as crazy as the people who think Elvis, Tupac, and Biggie are still alive. Jordan proved all the skeptics wrong on September 25, 2001 when he announced he would return to the NBA and suit up as a Washington Wizard.

Tallest chimneys of Hungary

Which are the tallest chimneys in Hungary?

I know only that the chimney of AES Tisza 2 Power Plant is 250 metres and that of Óbuda power plant in Budapest is 203 metres tall. Has someone pictures of them? Which other chimneys in Hungary are taller than 150 metres?

Towers of Szombathely Mediumwave Transmitter well described in German book from 1966!

The towers of Szombathely Mediumwave Transmitter, situated at 47° 12' 2'' N 16° 39' 43'' E are well described in the German book "Turmbauwerke" from Walther Drechsel, Bauverlag GmbH, Wiesbaden (Deutschland) edited in 1966.
Unfortunately the facility is described there as "Rundfunk-Relais Station Budapest ( Budapest Broadcasting Relay Station)", but the towers there are from design and count identic with that of Szombathely Mediumwave Transmitter.
Both towers are 60 metres tall and were built in 1954/55, insulated against groud and from triangular cross section.
As I know these are the only free-standng towers used for mediumwave broadcasting in Hungary.

Oldest Radio Tower in Hungary

Is it correct, that the radio mast of Nyiregyhaza ( picture: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/48364785 ) situated at 47 56 12.38 N 21 45 28.20 E was built in 1925? If yes, then it would be not only the oldest radio mast of Hungary, but one of the oldest still in use in Europe!

Tallest chimneys in Hungary

According http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/? the following chimneys in Hungary are taller than 200 metres

* Chimney of Visonta Power Station, 203 metres
* Chimney of Óbuda power plant chimney, 203 metres
* Chimneys of Dunamenti Power Station, 202 metres

but I believe, there are more. Which other chimneys in Hungary are taller than 200 metres? How tall is the chimney of Matra Power Station?
