“Moskva” hotel was one of the largest in the Russian capital. It was built in 1933-35. Here you can see how the hotel looked like in the period from the 1950s to 1980s. Does it seem to be cosy?

    Very angular but just as impressive as the contemporary western designs.

    Breadlines for the common man, luxury for party apparatchiks. Not much different in Russia today.

  4. Captain Orthogonality says:

    carpets are fine

  5. Dolores says:

    Soviets did grand spaces well; lobbies, public areas, exteriors, entrances, etc, but intimate spaces like apartments and hotel rooms seem to be deliberately uncomfortable.
