Москва (Moscow) - Kudrinskaya Square Building (Кудринской площади Строительство)

One of the so called "Seven sisters" - The "Seven Sisters" is the English name given to a group of Moscow skyscrapers designed in the Stalinist style. Muscovites call them Vysotki or Stalinskie Vysotki (Russian: Сталинские высотки), "(Stalin's) high-rises". They were built from 1947 to 1953,[1] in an elaborate combination of Russian Baroque and Gothic styles, and the technology used in building American skyscrapers. (see more at wikipedia)
