Almaty Television Tower, Almaty

(4/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the giant 371.5 m (1,219 ft) tall "syringe" of Almaty Television Tower, the world’s tallest tubular steel structure, built on the slopes of Kok Tobe Mountain near Almaty. Completed in 1983, this fabulous piece of Soviet engineering captures and broadcasts signal across rugged mountains, dominating a spectacular landscape. Observe Almaty from the deck below the tower in a small park with a mini-zoo, a restaurant, and a cafe. Designed to withstand earthquakes of up to 10 on the Richter scale, this modern steel structure features two observation decks at 146 m (479 ft) and 252 m (827 ft), accessible by two high-speed elevators. Part of Kok Tobe Park, you can take a cable car near the tower, and enjoy a meal or a coffee at its base. To visit Almaty Television Tower on your trip to Almaty, use our Almaty trip generator.

  • Two weeks we admire on it (seen from the front porch of rented us the House), from afar looks very impressive! Stands on the hill above the town, the view does not spoil. From afar rather pleasing to the eye than vice versa. Is beautifully illuminated in the evening.

  • Take the cable car on a clear sunny day so you get to see the beautiful mountains. You won't regret it. Have your picture taken with the famous golden apple when you reach the top. If more adventurous, try the Fast Rollercoaster ride/toboggan if you're comfortable with the thought of controlling the brakes yourself.
