It is very tall for a mass-produced building.

OMG, Kiev looks awsome as always... When I saw that pic by Dr. Mesofius then I understood that Kiev is the third city after Moscow and Leningrad (or St. Petersburg) which I'd really like to visit one day because of their awsome commieblocks!

Tallinn is not even come close to Kiev in terms of commieblocks. Well, those living in the upper floors of these blocks must be amongst the most urbanised people in Europe.

Kiev is still miles behind in terms of highrise residentials behind Hong Kong--- but Hong Kong does not have much more commieblocks in fact.

Moscow. The tallest serial is и-155 type tower, 24-story. Total count of such towers built is about 40.

Rusanivka in Kyiv. This area was built in 1970's exclusively of commieblocks. It was called by the communists something like model planning.






More commieblocks to your right, this is the right-bank of the river, looking in the opposite direction


Closeup of tall commieblocks and an under construction cathedral


Some new commieblocks in the back

At least from what I heard (or maybe my impression) St Petersburg has had a building height limit to somewhere around 25 floors. Recently though alot of 30+ floor commies have been proposed/approved/or uc.
