Seven buildings of Moscow, built from 1947 and 1955 during the Stalin' rule, are worldwide known as 'The Seven Sisters'. They give this particular charm between gothic and baroque that characterizes Moscow.

1. Moscow State University

2. Leningradskaya Hotel
 

3.Ukrainya Hotel

4.The Kudrinskaya Square Building

5. Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Apartments

6. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs

7. The Red Gates Administrative Building

However, (at least) two more buildings in Moscow can be included in the same architectural concept: The Palace o Culture and Science, and the Triumph Palace.

Stan: You're right. I might have read the ad stating "Lodz" in latin characters at the background :(

Thanks!

The building in Warsaw isn't the Triumph Palace. It's the "Pałac Kultury I Nauki", which translates literally to "Palace of Culture and Science," although a more accurate translation replaces "Palace" with "Center" (making the name "Center for Culture and Science").

The Triumph Palace is an apartment building built in Moscow between 2001 and 2003, often referred to as the "eighth sister."
