You forgot to tell us how romantic they are



I must admit that the east-bank Kiev is a commie-block paradise









East-bank Kiev from the air

The commie-blocks in Kiev are really beautiful at distance (and probably only at distance...)
How tall are Dniprovski Vezhi in meters?

I made a banner of the panorama pic. You can ask Jan to show it as SC banner if you want. But I'm not sure if you want to promote Kiev as a commie-block city

I don't know in meters... but they're certainly the tallest commieblocks in Ukraine.

It's your pic and you should ask sure, I have no problem with it. Even though when I think of Kyiv it's not commieblocks that come to my mind, but the whole left bank is also Kyiv..

How can any of you find those horrendously ugly buildings to be "nice looking"?!
