The Seven Sisters is the name given to Moscow Skyscrapers, or "Vysotki" in Russian, by the British immigrants who came to live in Russia in 1980s and 90s. Seven Sisters were built during Stalin's last years (1947-1953)in an elaborate combination of Russian Baroque and Gothic styles, and the technology of American skyscrapers.
