Its amazing how few candidates you can come up with reflecting the communist era. Communist architecture is sterile, sterile, sterile.

Cathrine Palace, Winter Palace - and especially the University, even though I have to say ALL of the Stalin Sisters are extremly beautiful and I look at them always as a whole concept!

Gothic in Russia? I know it's probably neogothic however I have never seen any gothic or even neogothic Russian building.

It's hard to choose only one building but my vote goes for Catherine palace. It's beautiful.

Besides, I'm really in awe with Peterhof, the Kremlin, St. Basil's, Catherine Palace - and even the monumental Stalinist architecture is quite impressive.

It's quite sad that the great wood architecture of Russia tumbles down these days... Many of them won't last, it's a tragedy. Just love the rural wooden houses everywhere!

By the by - you can find many exported examples of this architecture. You can find sorta colony of it in Potsdam (Germany, near Berlin), it's called Russische Kolonie Alexandrowka.
I hope most of the great Russian examples will last!
