Ostankino TV Tower – One of the World’s Top Ten Highest Buildings

The 540-meter Ostankino TV Tower is one of the symbols of Moscow. The tower is the eighth in the top ten of the world's tallest structures, and also the first in Europe and the fourth in the world among the highest TV towers. Its construction, which lasted seven years, was completed in 1967. In 2000, the tower caught fire, resulting in burnout of its three floors.

Today, there are two observation platforms on the tower: an open platform (works only in the warm season) and a closed platform, part of the floor of which is made of durable glass. Having enjoyed a dizzying panorama from a 350-meter height, you can visit the legendary revolving "The Seventh Heaven" restaurant. Tourists here are offered numerous excursions, for instance, to the Museum of Ostankino Tower. But what enjoys the greatest popularity during the tours to the TV Center is the visits to TV studios of famous TV programs, the exhibition hall with television decorations, and a walk along the "Corridor of History" in the underground passage under Akademika Koroleva Street. Here you can buy unique souvenirs, such as pendants, key charms and magnets depicting the tower. Going down from the dizzy altitude, it is worth looking into the nearby Ostankino Estate Museum, which belonged to Count Sheremetev, as well as take a walk in the local park or visit the nearby VDNKh Expocenter.
