From English Russia:
This one is really strange. It is a wooden multi-stored building. It looks like a real skyscraper in Arkhangelsk city. All the houses in the town are mainly two- three- stored and here it stands – a twelve stored wooden tower, more than 120 ft high (38 metres).
There is not elevator and you can reach the top of the building climbing by a carved wooden stairs.
The building can be seen from all the town. The city authorities claim that the building spoils the town view and demand to reduce it byâ€¦ 10 stores. But he refuses. He really likes his creation and most of the local people think that it looks nice.
