Tashkent TV Tower
Wednesday, 28th September 2005 by Alex Turnbull
This is the super-cool looking Tashkent TV Tower in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Standing at 375 metres, it’s slightly smaller than yesterday’s Central TV Tower, but it’s the tallest structure in central Asia (whatever that means). The tower uses a vertical cantilever structure which makes it look like some sort of gargantuan tripod, and also casts a brilliant shadow.
Note: The thumbnail here is rotated 180 degrees from the original, simply because it looked way cooler the right way up!
Just like the Central TV Tower, the Tashkent Tower has an observation deck (slightly higher at 318 metres) which allows it too, to be a member of the World Federation of Great Towers.
Thanks to Mikhail Kushnir, Pasha M. and Tim, we now have an Uzbekistan category!
