Frozen Moscow TV Tower

The TV tower of Ostankino in Moscow built in 1967 and held the championship belt for tallest man-made building (at 1,772 feet tall, surpassing the Empire State Building) until the CN Tower was built in Toronto in 1976. Due to numerous fires and accidents, large portions of the tower are now largely uninhabitated though it remains a testament to Soviet engineering and one helluva view.
