«Festive Illumination of Ostankino TV Tower in Twilight»

Erected in 1967, Ostankino TV and BC Tower in Moscow is one of the tallest free-standing buildings in the world. Standing 540 meters (1,771 feet) tall, it has a structural weight with foundation of over 55,000 tons, while the depth of foundation, of the main ring, is only 4.65 meters. This depth is even less under the ten bearing anchors, only 3.5 meters.

The festive illumination on Ostankino TV Tower with the colors of the Russian flag was installed since October 2014 when the tower became one of the main stages to open Moscow International Festival “Circle of Light”.
