Nowdays Ostankino area is mostly known for Ostankino TV tower, which is really a spectacular building. However, the place has a profound history long before Ostankino TV tower.
The first documental evidence of Ostankino village emerged in the 16th century as the place belonging to noble people of Ivan the Terrible era. But the chief name in Ostankino history is count Sheremetyev who possessed this place in 1743.
In 1967 the TVtower was built in Ostankino place. 540 meters height, which is the 4th tallest tower in the world. And only 4, 5 meters deep underground! Thanks to its unique construction. The tower was planned to be constructed not from metal, but from a reinforced concrete. And it’s held by metal ropes inside. There at the 335th meter above the ground you could step on the transparent glass floor and observe the WHOLE Moscow.
It’s really helpful if you don’t have much time to walk!
