  • In this place you can admire the untouched nature of the person. At a good height you can see the mountains. Their snow-capped peaks, their inaccessibility and greatness are visible directly from this tower. Minus the main place-tourists. Not even at rush hour we had to share a place with people. It would be nice to produce a limited number of people. 15 people quite comfortable position.

  • The place is chic and very beautiful views from the tower. Must visit. Near the museum where through a microscope you can see the works on rice, hair, etc. Between the tower and the museum are two photographers-rogue with a monkey, owl and chinchilla. Bred professionally-be careful with them. Negotiate a price before taking a photo.

  • Beautiful view provided perfect clear weather. Get to the serpentine, climb the tower and have a snack if you want. The Ferris wheel didn't work. You can take a photo in the Papach for 100 rubles. And the entrance to the tower also 100 rub per person
