This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile31377/Ruse-TV-Tower.htm>Ruse TV Tower</a></b><br><br>The Ruse TV Tower is a 204-meter high TV tower built of reinforced concrete at Rousse, Bulgaria. Originally, the structure was constructed as a 206-meter-high TV tower with a cafe/restaurant on top and was the tallest one on the Balkan peninsula until 2001[1]. In the 1990s an additional antenna was added bringing the height to 210 meters. And, in March 2007, the antenna was reconstructed bringing its height to 204 meters.<br />
<br />
The Ruse TV Tower was built on the Leventa hill, a.k.a. Sarabair, in 1986 and was launched on 7 May 1987 (under communist rule). Authors of the project were Stilyan Titkov, Evlogi Tsvetkov, Ivan Yantahtov and V. Vasilev. The newly-built tower started broadcasting both Bulgarian Television and Soviet Television, as well as the three stations of Bulgarian National Radio Horizon, Hristo Botev, and Orpheus (Bulgarian: Хоризонт, Христо Ботев и Орфей). Higher frequencies were coming into use during the following years, and the process of shutting down old transmitters was completed on 15 Aug 2004.<br />
<br />
The tower has an observation deck open for tourists at a height of 107 meters, which offers an excellent panoramic view of Ruse, the Danube river, the neighboring city of Giurgiu, Romania, and as far as the Carpathian Mountains.<br />
