My tour is about most ambitious architectural ensemble in Saint Petersburg Palace of Soviet and Moscow square. If you are intrested in Soviet culture and architecture my tour will be fascinating for you.
In 30s leningrads architects created some ambitious neoclassical architecture projects. New city plan offered to create grandiose administrative center in south of the city. Ensemble of Moscow square should be a powerful symbol of soviet political regime. Palace of Soviet was to be a main part of this ensemble.
Architects dreamed about the Palace and its environment. They created dozens of projects. Most of them had never been implemented. Before the world war II only the Palace was completed. After the War this project was ruined. Palace of Soviet became usual office building. Architectural dream was failed.
But, still architectural ensemble of Moscow square entirely represents Stalins architecture.
