I think either CN or stratosphere. Ive been in both, but I'm not sure which one I like more. I can't remember my vote. probly CN- it's more iconic and has better views imo, but both are wonderful

The CN Tower really has an air of grace about it ... Ostankino really lacks that, it looks lumpy and like its about to get launched into space.

actually you could fit exactly 3 space needles into the Cn tower height wise.

the space needle is nice, but doesn't belong in this group; it is more comparable to the Calgary tower or Skylon tower. Stratosphere doesn't belong here either as it is more in the league with Space needle or Skylon.

I vote CN over the Russian one, although that one is very cool.

Ostankino. While it is (perhaps) true that CN is more aesthetically valuable, the view from Ostankino is over Moscow, a city that's way more interesting than Toronto. And for this same reason I'd put Berliner Fernsehturm on second place, ahead of CN as well.

CN tower because of it's height, revolving restaurent (The best food I never ate), it's new leed, and the highest observation deck in the world ( for now :P)

Sorry to be rude, but in my humble opinion Ostankino is aesthetically unpleasant.

You're not being rude. Just... partial.

The CN Tower is a marvel, but the one in Berlin is my favourite. Ostankino isn't pretty, but it's certainly not boring either. I doubt I'd go up it though. Soviet era technology doesn't instill confidence.

I'd say Soviet era tech is the most rugged of all. Soviet era missiles (still functioning today) are the most reliable and the most used by parties who need space services. Weapons designed in the 70-es and 80-es are still in service in many countries, and often on par with updated western items. Same goes for dams and bridges - with no important failures, whereas, I recall, USAn bridge from the same period suffered at least two catastrophic collapses.
Oh well, the same fact of Ostankino having resisted a big fire and still standing up after 40 years without needing a major renovation, tells it all.
