Ostankino Tower

June 30, 2014


The tallest freestanding structure in Europe resides right here in Moscow. [And, interestingly enough, I learned this while climbing the Eiffel Tower last summer] Ostankino Tower  can be seen from all over Moscow. I finally went over to Ostankino park to get a closer look.

The tower is 540 meters tall and you can pay (about a 1000 rubles) to go inside and up to an observation deck if you like. I chose to visit Ostankino Estate and park instead and enjoy the views from the ground. =) From Metro вднх you can take a tram (17 or 11) to the park. As is true of all of Moscow’s parks, it’s a gorgeous place for a stroll!
