You can admire panoramic views of Moscow from the observation platform of the Ostankino TV tower, which is located at an altitude of 340 meters. The tower was completed in 1967. By the end of construction works, it was the tallest building in the world. Currently, two observation platforms are available there. The open deck is set at an altitude of 340 meters. It is available from May to October. There is also a glass-fronted viewing platform located three meters below. It welcomes visitors all year round.
An integral part of visiting lookouts is a tour around the TV tower, during which you can learn a lot of interesting stories about its construction, visit the Museum of Television and Radio, as well as look into the most hidden corners of the country's main television tower. Travelers who want to get the highest viewing platform of the country, have to consider some important nuances.
It’s worth to purchase tickets in advance. All visitors of the TV tower must be registered. The upper outdoor area is often closed during a bad weather, for example, when there is a stiff wind or rain. In this case, a trip can be moved to another date or refunded. Budget travelers and backpackers are recommended to buy tickets for trips that begin not later than 11 o'clock in the morning. In this case, a ticket will cost almost twice less than usual. In summer exciting tours are conducted for children; visitors must be elder than 7 years. Next - Leader Tower
