Moscow is being built at a very rapid rate these days. In Russia there is no any other big city like Moscow, there is no such a diversity of big cities like in the USA – Chicago, San Francisco, New York City, etc – only Moscow is the one place in Russia where all the main offices of all the big companies reside, where is all the politicians live and work and to where all the people from smaller towns go to climb the social stairs. As we mentioned once Russians say that 90% of money that are in circulation in Russia are in Moscow, and then they add that 90% of those 90% is in the centre of Moscow. So it’s no secret why Moscow is being developed so fast.
This Russian blogger Russos got himself on the top of the building “Federation Tower”, that should be the tallest building in Europe when finished. He shot views of Moscow in all the directions and here are those photos.
This is the idea of the height of the tower, not from the top floor, but instead of security barriers or fences you got used to see on the usual skyscrapers top levels here is nothing like this. One can reach the window without any barrier and look down. The photographer says he couldn’t force himself to walk to the edge, he crawled instead.
That is the store where the coating stops from where he shot the rest of the images.
The altitude was 220 metres (around 700 ft), from the total of 354 metres (1050 feet) it would reach after would be finished.
You see – no security barriers.
One of the Moscow bridges.
The new living skyscraper styled like old-time Stalin’s one.
