Ostankino TV Tower, Moscow
(4.2/5 based on 500+ 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. Plan your visit to Ostankino TV Tower and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Moscow trip itinerary maker.

  • Ostankino tower-one of the symbols of the city and a landmark number one ... In the sense that 540-meter Spire towers visible for many kilometers, of course, if the weather allows. Extreme times watched Tower a couple of days ago and the weather allowed, and spire in its place. For half a century.

  • The view from the top of the tower is wonderful. Security checks were very very accurate, but in these days i do understand why ;-) the entrance is permitted only at fixed hours and in big group. the tour takes almost an hour. there is a guide (a young man) that explains you what you are seeing and how it was built and so on, but unfortunatly the explanation is (as usual) only in russian :-(
  • Perfect for photos. Highest restaurant building in Europe... Restaurant slowly turns around the tower, one revolution each 45 minutes.
  • Top of the Moscow. You can walk in the air around 340m from ground. Good city view...
  • Magnificent view. Go to the "Seventh Sky" restaurant - it rotates
  • Excellent place but very Security Paranoid
