World's largest 100-feet-high Matryoshka doll made in China

MOSCOW, May 18 (RIA Novosti) - The world's largest Matryoshka, or nested doll, has been created in the northeastern Chinese city of Manzhouli, in Inner Mongolia, the Xinhua news agency reported Friday citing city administration representatives.
The local administration said the Matryoshka, which is 30 meters (98.4 feet) high, is the leading municipal project aimed at attracting tourists with an expected overall area of 540,000 square meters (5.8 million square feet). The first part of the original complex was built in 2006.
Chinese, Mongolian and Russian girls are pictured on a gigantic Matryoshka-shaped construction on the city's eponymous square.
The area of rooms inside of the doll is 3,200 square meters (34,400 square feet). They house a European cuisine restaurant and a presentation hall.
Eight similar, but smaller, buildings have been built around the "main" Matryoshka, as well as 200 small Matryoshkas showing famous politicians and public figures from all over the world.
Matryoshka dolls, also called nested dolls, stacking dolls or Babushka dolls, are sets of dolls of decreasing size that fit into one another. The name Matryoshka might have originated from the Russian first name Matryona, usually associated with a robust rustic Russian woman.
