The 7 Sisters–Moscow’s Stalinist Skyscrapers

Back during my Moscow Trip in September 2009, one of the most interesting things we saw were the Stalinist  Skyscrapers known as the 7 sisters.  
The first one we saw, was the near the Kievsky Train Station…  on the morning of Arrival

Unfortunately, I was unable to get a clear shot of the Hotel Leningradskaya

And although not a Stalinist Skyscraper, these are two interesting buildings…
The first… is the main library I think , which looks like an open book…
