  One of Stalin's Seven Sisters Buildings
by swesn

Stalin apparently ordered the designs of seven tiered Neoclassical buildings all around Moscow. They are all of similar designs.

Have fun spotting them! Personally, while they are touted as UGLY in many guidebooks, I think the buildings look really imposing and unique. I like them very much.
