Stalins High-rises mean seven skyscrapers built in Moscow between the late 1940s and the early 1950s. The initial project plan was to construct 8 buildings intended to symbolize the 800th anniversary of Moscow and to "frame" (literally) the never-erected Palace of the Soviets. However, the construction of seven sisters was terminated after the death of Stalin; later, the Rossiya Hotel was built on its foundation.

The architectural predecessor of Stalinist skyscrapers is the Manhattan Municipal Building, built in 1909-1914 by the architect W. Kendall in the Neoclassical style.

The project designers of the Moscow high-rises, constructed involving the best experts of the time, managed to create original architectural solutions, called in special literature Stalin Empire style or Soviet monumental classicism.

The Seven Sisters are a peak of the post-war Soviet art-deco in urban architecture.

The seven skyscrapers are as follows:

  • Main building of the Moscow State University
  • Kotelnicheskaya Embankment residential house  
  • Ukraina Hotel
  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs building
  • Kudrinskaya Square residential house  
  • RedGatesSquarehigh-rise
  • Leningrad Hotel
