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 :banana: Up there I felt like in paradise :)



My room



The view from it rocks ;)
