Beautiful building, but keep in mind it was built by Stalin to represent the power of the State. Its meant to intimidate, not impress.

This is part of the "seven sisters" buildings. All Stalinist Gothic. One of them, Palace of Culture, was never built.

Incidentally, this is the tallest academic building in the world. The second tallest is the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania, US).

6.5 / 10 - I've clicked by this thread several times before, and have not voted because I couldn't decide how to rate this imposing, massive pile...Is is a scraper or a castle, or what?
(I might have given it a higher rating as a castle....)

The main tower seems to have a lot of nice "neo-quelquechose" detailing (that wasn't sarcasm - just an inability to identify the style more precisely - or is it several styles?) At any rate, the red string courses (if that's the term i want), the other bands of relief work running around the tower, and the statues seem, as far as I can see, to work well together. The set backs give it some gracefullness in spite of its massiveness.

The smaller towers also seem to work well, and make the overall shape of the building more graceful.

However...

That metal spire with the star & wreath sprouting from what looks like a vase simply comes accross as the world's largest potted plant, perhaps an escapee from that movie "Little Shop of Horrors", and looks, somehow, completely out of place.

The facade, below the ornament, seems bland, almost dreary, as if the architects had exhausted their energy up there where the building meets the sky...
