Here you can visit four panoramic platforms located between the bell towers of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. The relatively low height of the platforms (40 metres (125 feet)) and the central position of the Cathedral allow the visitors to enjoy the views of the Moskva River, the industrial warehouses of the Red October island, Gorky Park, one of Stalin's skyscrapers at Kotelnicheskaya Naberezhnaya (Kotelnicheskaya Embankment), and the old-fashioned lanes surrounding Ulitsa Ostozhenka (Ostozhenka Street) and Ulitsa Prechistenka (Prechistenka Street). Observation binoculars provide excellent close-up views of the Kremlin.
