“Stalinesque architechture at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

Wow, impressive building on the hill above Moscow. Its size and style is imposing and worth seeing. A short stroll from there to Sparrow Hill viewing point gives a great view out over Moscow.

“Massive site next to the Sparrow Hills view point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

This building is worth a close up view, it's huge. It's just a short walk from the Sparrow Hills view point. It's about a 15 minute walk from the Universitet Metro station. Best views of the 'Stalin's Sister' building is from the view point itself. Unfortunately it doesn't look open to the public.

“Most amazing building I ever seen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

The outside is amazing. Go at night, to see this beautiful lighting. Unfortunately, I did not go inside. Maybe it is just for students and employees.

Incredible building! Although it was a little bit of a walk out of the centre, actually seeing this building up close is impressive. It could take about twenty minutes to walk around the perimeter but looking up the intricate details and vastness of the building is one that is quite startling.
