"Vysotsky" skyscraper and business center was the highest building in Yekaterinburg until recently. Its height is 188.3 meters and it has 54 floors. "Vysotsky" was considered the highest building not only in Yekaterinburg, but also in Russia (excluding Moscow) before the construction of the skyscraper "Iset". Moreover, "Vysotsky" is the northernmost skyscraper in the world. It is named after Vladimir Vysotsky, a famous poet, actor and musician. This particular name was chosen by citizens for the building as a result of the competition for a new name for the city attraction. The skyscraper was opened by the actor’s son Nikita Vysotsky.
The lookout on the 52 floor of "Vysotsky" Business Center at the height of 186 meters offers a panoramic view of Yekaterinburg. The urban space is viewed for 25 km. Guided tours are organized to the lookout, during which the audio guide "tells" in several languages about everything that can be seen from this height. There is also a small café here.
