CN Tower for sure.

Ostankino is a glorified antennae that kind of looks like Bender from Futurama.

And of course, Stratosphere is a wannabe space needle.

CN Tower! For Ostankino I don't like how there is wire framing, and dishes sticking out of the tower, it looks like a stick with a bunch of different communications attachments stuck to it..

I think this poll expresses quite well the different wide band penetration levels of Canada vs. Russia.

Wow, whoever Photoshopped in a bigger moon in that Stratosphere picture exaggerated somewhat. Note to whoever did it.. the moon is never that big unless you are on one of the space shuttles! hehe

CN Tower. I loved it since I first saw it on a picture in a book about world wonders when I was 8 years old.

Stratosphere tower is the best looking of the three, but the CN Tower is the all around favourite for me...the Ostankino Tower is just a no no...
