Observation Deck of Ostankino TV Tower

The observation deck of the TV tower was a dream for all Soviet children. Back in Soviet times, the views of Moscow were available from the Vorobyovy Gory (Sparrow Hills) that were accessible to almost everyone, and from the TV tower, where few people had access. Even today, the view of the city from the height of 337 metres (1,106 feet) is only available in the company of a tour guide, so check the times and enroll on a tour ahead of time.
