Moscow is a city that cannot be described with simple words - it requires epithets and proverbs. It has been called white-walled and gold-domed, ancient and youthful, hospitable and business-like, solemn and merry and bustling all at once. A sun, feeding life, which spins around it . In other words, a true capital.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Main Building
Of all the Stalin's towers, this is one of the stateliest. This 27-storey, 172-metre (564-feet) tall tower, designed by Vladimir Gelfreikh and Mikhail Minkus, was built in 1953. The tower, which for many years has remained the home of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, has spawned countless urban legends about spies, intelligence agents, secret tunnels and diplomatic dramas. The Ministry building is the only tower that has no customary five-pronged star on its spire.
