In Radisson Royal Hotel in Moscow, you can find a beautiful diorama of the Kremlin and downtown Moscow made on a scale of 1 to 75.

Made in the 1970s, the diorama has traveled a lot to be exposed at different international exhibitions. A few years ago, it was bought by the hotel.

Initially, the diorama was made for the National Exhibition which was to take place in New York in 1977. After the exhibition, where it had a great success, they decided to exhibit it at other exhibitions and in 1980 it returned back to Moscow. It was later sold to a private individual and in the 1990s was exposed in a mall. People from different countries showed their interest in buying the diorama, including Japan and the USA, but luckily it remained in Russia.
