I love them all, Stalin truly had some great taste in architecture. I love the Gothic look of all these buildings. But my favourites are MSU, MFA, and PCS.

Honorable mention: Ryugyong Hotel is the most beautiful building of all time for me, but it isn't on the list.

Moscow State University has probably the best looking facade and details. It looks the best of all for the moment.
Warsaw ain't giving a damn about our Palace - they didn't demolish it because it was "an important landmark" but now it's just collecting dirt

Why isn't Ryugyong Hotel on the list? When I saw the thread, the only building that pop ups in my head is that one.

Palace of the Soviets. The most bombastic one of all. King Kong would've f*cked Lenin up there!!

I guess you meant 'Stalinist' style builings


@Eric Offereins Yeah, the stature's really cheesy. But if they replaced that with a spire like what's on Kudrinskaya Square Building it would have looked amazing.

yes, you're right

The White House (Russian: Белый дом, tr. Bely dom; IPA: ['bʲɛlɨj dom]), also known as the Russian White House, is a government building in Moscow. It stands on Krasnopresnenskaya embankment. Construction started in 1965 and ended in 1981. Originally called The House of Soviets, it was designed by the architects Dmitry Chechulin and P. Shteller. Overall design follows Chechulin's 1934 draft of the Aeroflot building.
