Maybe it should be in the "ugly skyscrapers"-thread... but it's funny in a way.

The Motherland Calls - Volgograd, Russia

Not sure if anyone mentioned this or not already...









The statue is 85m in height and is a monument to Russia's victory at Stalingrad.

Hey guys, thank you for this amazing and imposing thread. If I would have to, I would definitely vote for either Potala of the ancient:
and Kingdom tower in Saudi Arabia for its uniqueness.

But of course, most of the pictures I have seen in this thread I find imposing as hell.

the most imposing building in Chile is the Parliament Building, at Valparaiso. it is imposing because the city has a very unique style, and it is full of little-middle size biuldings, so this one looks really out of place:
