It's about one-seventieth as tall as The Washington Monument.
In other words, 250 centimeters is 0.014768 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 67.714 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 16,929 centimeters tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction.
It's about one-seventy-fifth as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, the height of The Space Needle is 73.5 times 250 centimeters.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 18,400 centimeters tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about one-ninetieth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 90.9 times 250 centimeters.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 22,700 centimeters above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about one-one-hundredth as long as The QE2.
In other words, 250 centimeters is 0.0085 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 118 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 29,400 centimeters. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 960,000,000,000 centimeters, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Eiffel Tower.
In other words, 250 centimeters is 0.00772 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 130 times that amount.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)

In other words, 250 centimeters is 0.0065615 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 152.4 times that amount.
(New York City, New York) (to top of building)
The Empire State Building stands 38,101 centimeters to its architectural peak. The spire emerging from the top of the building was originally intended to be a mooring mast for blimps whose passengers could disembark onto a landing platform on the 102nd floor of the building.
It's about 200 times as long as an Aspirin.
In other words, 250 centimeters is 180 times the length of an Aspirin, and the length of an Aspirin is 0.0056 times that amount.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
A single aspirin tablet measures 1.4 centimeters in diameter. One of the most common medicines in the world and a foundation of worldwide health systems, an estimated 40,000 metric tons of aspirin are consumed each year.
