London Eye - it is a wonderful viewing platform in London. In good weather, overlooking the city in a radius of 40 km ! Previously, it was the tallest Ferris wheel in the world - its height of 135 m, but then it " outgrew " Singapore, built his wheel at 30 m above ( 165m ). Naturally, because of all this height lockers in London eyes closed, and so when hanging over London famous London fog, and the wheels can not see anything in the booths there are banquets, tea, numerous festivities.
From Moscow Ferris wheel at VVC also can admire the views, but worse, because the wheel is much lower - its height is 73 m. This wheel was built for the 850th anniversary of Moscow in 1994, but it turned out a year earlier. It is because of this date in the center of the wheel painted bright - red number 850.
Despite the fact that the attractions are similar, they have some distinct differences. Well, Moscow Ferris wheel at VVC is difficult to call attraction, because it is much lower than the London Eye - by as much as 62 m ! But at the London Eye from 32 booths no one open, and there in our wheel. And all in our wheel 40 booths, and London Eye 32. But both attractions are very beautiful, and when you see them, you forget about the differences and shortcomings.
