This place has so much possibility and looks lovely from outside, but I was a bit disappointed. The ticket for foreigners costs 400 rubles and only gets you into the small museum, since the tower is currently closed for restoration. There is lots of ongoing...More

At the time of our visit it was quite busy and very interesting, many people. We climbed up the tower (though there was a small queue) and the views were unparalelled.
