The Ostankino TV Tower will take part in a large-scale international action timed to celebrate the 4716th Chinese New Year. This is one of the most honored and traditional Chinese holidays.

According to tradition, the Chinese decorate their homes in advance to protect themselves from the mythical monster Nian (translated from the Chinese "Year"): they decorate the outside with beautiful patterns of red paper, pair inscriptions and pictures with wishes, and also hang red lights everywhere.

On February 10, 2018, from 19:00 to 22:00, the Ostankino TV tower, together with the Canton Tower (Guangzhou, China) will be illuminated in red. In addition to the Ostankino TV tower, 11 more towers on different continents were invited to participate in the action. They all are members of the World Federation of Great Towers.
