Look at the Moscow’s outskirts and their residential compounds inside this post.
In Russia people are still not fully realized that to live in large cities and metropolitan areas is harmful to health when they realize – too late to be
They are in any case will not live to old age due to excessive consumption of beer and vodka. In Russia, they drink almost everything from the earliest years. img5′immage’de409b2d072cgirlsandbeer’jpg
What is that white building on picture no. 6?
I can’t remember the name, possibly something to with university. But I think it has a restaurant/bar on the top foor.
Russian Academy of Sciences, and the Sky Lounge is on floor 22.
Amazing buildings, I cant wait to see them for myself when I go to Russia. Architecture like this is awe inspiring…
White building on picture 6 is the Science Academy of Russia
Beautiful pictures. Would love to visit Russia one day but heard it is very expensive. Maybe one day!
Moscow is one of the most expensive cities. But it’s not so expensive as London.
Any photos of neighbourhoods with detached residences?
There’s lots of private gated housing (detached) outside of Moscow.
I saw some new expensive homes out of the planes window before it landed at Moscow International.It looked like a suburb in my city in the USA.
Some really nice looking buildings there. Nice mix of trees and concrete too. That’s one reason I hate the cities, just no trees. I need GREEN around me.
Looks like any big city…the occasional golden church domes at least give some relief to dehumanizing scene.
Is that a mosque ? In picture 20 .
Its only green for about 90 days. The rest of the time it is white, or muddy slush with trash littered throughout.
~170 days, but not 90.
Overpopulation. Growth like cancer; it will eventually kill the host (humanity). Disurbanistic “cities” and communes promote ZPG. More resources for all, less waste. Stalin ruined everything…
Some of those buildings look like they were directly transplanted from the USA.
Inspiration from NYC during Stalins reign.
You think that high buildings are only in the USA?
How should we build them, to make them not “look like USA”???
Every country copies each other.The USA has copied buildings from other country’s.Stalin did the 7 sisters buildings and some of them resemble the Empire State Building.It is a historical fact.HOWEVER….the interior of the buildings in Moscow look better than the buildings in NYC.
It was the municipal building in NYC that inspired Stalin.But some of them do look like the empire state building on top.-http://www.nyc-architecture.com/SCC/SCC030a.htm
The Liver Building in Liverpool (UK) is the main influence of the Russian and America building styles.
Just out of curiousity, what does an ‘normal’ size appartment cost in Moskou? Let say a modern 3 room appartment or such.
~12 million rubles
I would say around $500-600k. But of course it can vary greatly depending on the neighborhood, the type of the building itself, how close it is to a subway station, etc.
evans .ru have prices and listings.
When people think of amazing cities they will soon think of Moscow! Not New York or London. Sweden have so much to learn from Russia.
Hey, I was in Sweden some weeks ago, in Stockholm and in Upsula. Both cities are awesome, so don’t worry
But you’re right, Moscow is a really amazing place.
Amazing city, I going to move to Russia!
