Hotel Ukraina, now the Radisson Ukraina, since it was bought by Radisson a few years ago.
This building is one of the Seven Sisters - Stalin's seven skyscrapers. I haven't been inside, but I assume that it's as intricately detailed on the inside as it is on the outside. When it's warmer and my camera doesn't mind the temperature change from outside to inside, I'll go in and explore!
