The TV Tower, a 375m three-legged monster, the epitome of Soviet design, stands north of the city centre but can be seen from all over town. The price of admission gets you up to the 100m viewing platform and you’ll need your passport to buy a ticket. To go up to the next level (about 220m) you’ll have to grease the guard’s palm – 10,000S should do the trick. At 110m there’s a revolving restaurant that serves a decidedly mediocre set Russian meal.
