Germania would have been built on the ruins of Berlin - not destroyed by war but by Hitler and Speer - parallels to Nero are obvious... Okay, what they did in central Singapore and in Barcelona (for the Olympic games) was also not the friendliest way Or how is it now in Zimbabwe?

If the main Russian tower with Lenin had been built It would of no doubt been one of the World's modern wonders.. It would be like putting ms Liberty statue herself on top of ESB or something, bizarre to imagine.

You can't judge it now - it's not finnished and maybe it never will be (financial problems). I saw once a very nice blueish glass coverage...

Wow, what an interesting thread!!

Some of those buildings are amazing, and amazingly massive. I'm going to generalize now but, it's funny how some Communist of Stalin's era thought that bigger was better.

Cheers!!

These projects look very grandeur and demonstrates the power of the country. Well remember this was before the war, if it was completed during 1930-1945 those buildings could of been bombed by Hitler.
