Moscow high buildings

Today almost nobody remembers that the foundations of the seven of eight planned Moscow high buildings were laid in one day on September 12,1947, in the day of the eight-hundredth anniversary of Moscow. According to the plan of the government, Moscow stepped over the boundary of its eight-hundredth anniversary flying high into the air, and the planned high buildings were intended to clearly emphasize it. Eight huge buildings in the Soviet Empire style were intended to become the surrounding of the really gigantic building -the Palace of Soviets which in fact has never been built. The construction of practically all the buildings laid in 1947 only began in 1949. During the construction the number of storeys, planning and designation of high buildings were changing. The decisions were revised straightly in process*, so the design was executed across to the construction. I. Stalin personally supervised this project and added with his own hands the spires to some of high buildings. Consequently even a term appeared characterizing this style, Soviet Classicism*, that is why the people started calling these buildings stalinskie vysotki (the skyscrapers of Stalin's times). Along with the construction of high buildings the myths and legends around them were actively growing. But, perhaps, the basements of these buildings whose depth reaches tenths of meters hide no less riddles. First of all the rumors appear because of the singularity of buildings, and in all non-standard things a man wants to find a secret which doesn't exist indeed.

We invite you to make an unusua) virtual travel over these mysterious buildings.
