Milad Tower, Tehran, Iran
i might be biased, but I find it much more pleasant and beautiful compared to other towers of its style , like the CN tower or auckland or stuttgart towers

this actually seems to have a theme, an architectural idea behind it
the arches and the dome give it a more interactive feel, designs that are based on traditional styles

the interiors are also huge , the capsule on the top has 7 floors (cafe, restaurant, gallery etc, sky dome etc)

.........structures like this prove that nuclear weapons are a good thing and with any luck the nuclear fallout will also take care of that Blackpool thing.

My favorites are the Eiffel and CN by a long shot with honourable mention to the Canton and Space needle.

In terms of views, it's damn hard to beat the Skylon in Niagara Falls......certainly the most unique and spectacular views of any observation deck.
