Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web
Once the tallest freestanding structure in the world, Ostankino TV Tower offers impressive views over Moscow. Upon completion in 1967, the 540 m (1,772 ft) television and radio tower surpassed the Empire State Building's record. In 1976, with the construction of the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, the tower lost the title, but it remains the tallest freestanding structure in Europe. Ride the elevator to the observation platform, where you will have an unimpeded view of the Russian capital below. Take advantage of the free binoculars here and see Moscow up close. Brave the glass floor with a view straight to the ground, if you can stomach it. You must bring your passport to purchase tickets to enter.

  • Went to a trip to the observation deck. Beautiful view, new information and new sensations. Unexpectedly on a glass floor looking down the first emotion of fear, then considered with interest what was under your feet)

  • A very organized approach. Best of all, of course, buy tickets knowing the weather (should be good visibility) using the site for a couple of hours before visiting. A little expensive, but I think it's worth it. By the way, the buffet very affordable prices, you can have a beer with a wonderful view from the tallest in the city and still spinning floor:)
