Five of the highest towers in the world
The first place in this rating belongs to the Tokyo Sky Tree tower built in 2011 on the territory of Japanese Tokyo. The height of the Tokyo's Heavenly Tree is 625 meters (or 1998 feet).
This structure was built at a record pace - about 10 meters in just one week. Moreover, the construction of the tower took place with the strongest financial and natural complications: when installing cranes at the end of 2011 in Japan, the strongest earthquake began. After that, the official opening of the facility was postponed for several months.
Now Tokyo Sky Tree is able to compensate for up to 50% of all shocks after movements of the earth's crust. The highest tower is used for television and radio broadcasting, as well as for tourist purposes.
The tower has restaurants, boutiques, a theater and observation and observation platforms at an altitude of 340, 345, 350 and 451 meters.
