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.
A small museum of radiotechnics is located on the lower floor of the tower.
People are shown video devoted to safety issues before going upstairs.
