The low-energy (bosonic 'heterotic') string theory is interpreted as a universal limit of the Kaluza-Klein reduction when the dimension of an internal space goes to infinity. We show that such an approach is helpful in obtaining classical solutions of the string model. As a particular application, we obtain new exact static solutions for the two-dimensional effective string model. They turn out to be in agreement with the generalized no-hair conjecture, in complete analogy with the four- and higher-dimensional Einstein theory of gravity.
