Stalin’s Seven Sisters building is a nickname given to the building in Moscow Russia. The building is a prime example of Stalinist Architecture. The building was constructed in the prime of Stalin’s power from 1947-1953. The building is also nicknamed the “Wedding Cake” because of it’s tiered architecture. The architecture under Stalin’s power was unique in that it typically had a Gothic/Baroque style while using American skyscraper technologies.

The seven sections are: Hotel Ukraina, Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Apartments, the Kudrinskaya Square Building, the Hotel Leningradskaya, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the main building of the Moscow State University, and the Red Gates Administrative Building. There were two more skyscrapers in the same style that were never built: the Zaryadye Administrative building and the Palace of the Soviets.

The Seven Sisters is still one the tallest buildings in Europe. The grandiose size reveals a once successful leadership of Stalin.

Architecture during Stalin’s power had many similarities in design and materials, because Stalin created an architects union to design all major buildings throughout The Soviet Union.
