Moscow - beautiful views from Hotel Ukraina

Let me present a set of pics with beautiful views from Hotel Ukraina I took during my trip to Moscow in September this year.

This is the hotel. It's my favorite Stalin highrise in Moscow.



You can see where my room was located Up there I felt like in paradise



My room



The view from it rocks

Two maps for better orientation. I marked the most important objects that you will see in this thread:





---

Time for the views. Not many comments from my side in this thread. The pictures speak for themselves

Views from my hotel room, just after arrival:

White House and the Stalin-gothic residential at Kudrinskaya Square



New Arbat (street) with the characteristic highrises, built in the 60's



Mayor Office, former SEV (Comecon) building. Comecon was the socialist trading bloc...



A little bit later





Stalin-gothic residential highrise at Kotelnicheskaya and the new-built Cathedral of Christ the Saviour.



Cathedral of Christ the Saviour and the Stalin-gothic Ministry of Foreign Affairs



White House again



Mayor Office. In the background two Stalin-gothic highrises: the Leningradskaya Hotel and the Transport Construction Ministry.



Ostankino TV-tower



New Arbat at late night



---

Two pics taken from the corridor (through dirty windows):

Kiev train station. In the background Luzhniki Bridge and Luzhniki Stadium.



The Triumph Palace

Sunrise next day seen from my hotel room:



Morning views from my room:

Mayor Office. In the background two Stalin-gothic highrises: the Leningradskaya Hotel and the Transport Construction Ministry.

After breakfast I went up this stairs to the outlook terrace at the 31th floor (my room was on the 28th):



Pics in clock-wise order (from south-east to north-east):

Two towers at IBC (International Business Centre), the place where Moscows tallest skyscrapers are currently being built. The tower on the left side is "Tower 2000". The one on the right side is the Block A (the lowest one) of the "Naberezhnaya Tower". In the background the Edelweiss residential can be seen.



IBC construction ground



World Trade Center by the Moscow River.



New buildings at Shchukino district. Scarlet Sails etc.
