Moscow, Sept 2004 - part II - fantastic views from Hotel Ukraina

This is the second thread with pics from my trip to Moscow. I will concentrate here on the beautiful views from Hotel Ukraina, where I stayed.

The first part can be found here: Moscow, Sept 2004 - from the air + airport-hotel route

This is the hotel. It's my favorite Stalin highrise.



You can see where my room was located Up there I felt like in paradise



My room



The view from it rocks

Two maps for better orientation:

Time for the views. Not many comments from my side in this thread. The pictures speak for themselves

Views from my hotel room, just after arrival:

White House and the Stalin-gothic residential at Kudrinskaya Square



New Arbat (street) with the characteristic highrises, built in the 60's



Mayor Office, former SEV (Comecon) building. Comecon was the socialist trading bloc...



A little bit later





Stalin-gothic residential highrise at Kotelnicheskaya and the new-built Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.



Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and the Stalin-gothic Ministry of Foreign Affairs



White House again



Mayor Office. In the background two Stalin-gothic highrises: the Leningradskaya Hotel and the Transport Construction Ministry.



Ostankino TV-tower

Whoooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Astonishing, to say the least.

By the way, from this height, Moscow indeed does look much less erratic than it does on the ground level

I have nothing to add, but I just have to join the choir.

You were damn lucky to have such a view from your room. If I were you, maybe I wouldn't had slept at all, millions lights of Moscow are definitely a breathtaking view from Hotel Ukraina's 28th floor. You have verified your amazing view with talent and skill, these photos reflect your experience. Especially those sunrise and night shots are something really awesome, I just can't stop scrolliong them!
