A good place to come as part of the tourist trail to get a birds eye view of the city. It seems to be a favourite with locals as well. High glazed screens stop you being buffetted too much by the wind.

A good way to start sightseeing in Yekaterinburg is to go to the Visotsky Business Center, a skyscraper in the corner of Malyshev and Karl-Liebknecht streets, which was opened in 2011. It used to be the city's tallest building for a few years, but has been surpassed by 24m with the completion of the 213m tall Iset Tower four years later. Once at the Visotsky Tower one buys a ticket for 350 RUB, which allows one to take a rather small elevator up to the 52 floor at an altitude of 186m. There is a circular platform, protected by glass windows, with views in all direction. Good boards in Russian and English explain all the main buildings one can see from up here, also the Church on Blood. It is an impressive way to look at a large modern city in the West Siberian plains with the low Central Urals in the background. Also visible are the Iset river and the City Pond. There are a few benches, telescopes and vending machines for soft drinks. Not a place though to visit in rainy weather. The skyscraper was named after the very popular Muscovite singer-songwriter Vladimir Vysotsky ('vysoky' also meaning 'tall' in Russian), who passed away in 1980 at age 42. There is a museum dedicated to him with some personal belongings on the 3rd floor. At the back of the building is a bronze sculpture of him and his wife Marina Vlady, the French actress of Russian origin.

We actually went to the restaurant on the 51st floor of the building. The Vertical restaurant. The food and cocktails were great and really fairly priced especially given the views we had from there. Highly recommend a visit if you’re in Yekaterinburg, a great way to get a view over a really unique city.

We visited the Vysotski museum. Which is interesting - but primarily in Russian. However the entrance ticket included a visit to the 52. floor of the building and it is a breathtaking view not to be missed

This tower is just great... make sure you have enough time to visit not only the Lookout - also the museum is very interesting!
