Ostankino TV Tower: Moscow Views

Posted on July 28, 2011 by kulichik

Last time we told you about Ostankino TV tower. Today we’ll climb the  Tower, a free-standing television and radio tower in Moscow, to enjoy bird’s-eye view of the city of Moscow. Standing 540 meters (1,770 ft) tall, Ostankino is a member of the World Federation of Great Towers, currently the tallest in Europe and 3rd tallest in the world.

Maximum fixed deviation of its spire is 7 meters whereas allowable deviation accounts for 12 meters.

Entering the tower is not that easy. You will be thoroughly examined and your documents will be carefully checked.

    Nothing really special in this post. I don’t see the point really.

    Hi! very interesting pictures. Does this mean that the tower is reopened for visitors again? When I was in Moscow 2 years ago, it was closed.

    Its amazing how something that large can get into orbit.

    Nice place, glad to see it open for tours again. I was not aware of the small museum inside.

    It would have been nice to see the transmitter room. I have always been curious as to what it takes to broadcast a TV signal over 11 time zones.

    It is my understanding that the small pond across the roadway from the tower (3rd photo from end) is actually a cooling pond for the huge transmitters that feed Ostankino.

    Would love to see more about this, keep up the good work.

    Wow. Neat views. If you get the chance go up in the Arch in St. Louis. Not as high, but still quite a way up.

    Moscow needs African Americans for cultural diversity.
