Ostankino TV Tower

Akademika Koroleva St, 15, Moscow, 127427

The Basics

Visitors can ride the high-speed elevator to the tower’s two viewing decks: the glass-floored observation deck at 1,106 feet (337 meters) and the open-air observation deck at 279 feet (85 meters). Tickets must be purchased in advance, and with limited daily visitor numbers, it’s worth booking early, especially during peak season. Diners can enjoy lunch or dinner with a panoramic view of the city at the revolving 7th Heaven Restaurant.
