The university looking fantastic as usual, love the lighting scheme! Always been a fan of Stalinist architecture.

It is not Moscow University it is part of Seven Sisters. You can try finding it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Sisters_(Moscow)

Haha, so it is, thanks for the correction. The university has taller 'secondary towers' in proportion to the main tower right? Regardless, it looks superb

@Eurovision

I thought all the famous Stalinist 'scrapers in Moscow were collectively called the Seven Sisters, or am I wrong, is it just the name of one tower?

It is name for group of stalinist skyscrapers in Moscow, but the names of the towers might have changed.

This is Moscow university: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...nosov_1991.jpg

Ah! That's the one! A magnificent building, pretty easy to confuse them though to the untrained eye. Thanks

it's a stunning tower

I can never decide which I like more... NYC's classical skyscrapers, or the Stalinist towers built within USSR... I really like the one in Warsaw, 'the palace of science and technology' I believe it is called.
