The Highest Christmas Tree to Be Set Up in Caucasus

The highest Christmas tree in the Northern Caucasus will be set up in the city of Grozny. According to the city's press-service, the tree will be placed in Grozny's central square and its height will be about 35,7 metres and its basal diameter will be 11 metres.

      The Christmas tree's installation is almost finished. Then it will be decorated with Christmas balls, tinsels, garlands and other decorative elements. 

        Grozny's city hall plans to finish the city's holiday decoration before December 20. The Chechen capital tries to follow the tendencies of the other big cities of Russian Federation, which currently use more illuminated design installations than architectural elements. So, these holidays, Grozny will be fuller of lights than ever more.

      Traditionally, on the New Year eve, there will be theatrical performances on the central city's square. Besides the highest tree, the decorated firs will be set up in all districts of Grozny.

      The main Christmas Tree in Moscow's Kremlin is usually a bit taller that 30 metres. But, as opposed to Grozny, the Moscow fir is natural. The highest man-made Christmas Tree was set up in Krasnoyarsk, in 2009. Its height was 46 metres and weight was 35 tonnes.
