Facts

  • Adjacent to Komsomolskaya Square, also known as the Three Stations Square.
  • An observation deck is proposed on the 20th floor, as well as a restaurant one floor below.
  • The 6-storey podium acts as a foundation to the narrower 13-storey rectangular tower. Topped with a 3-storey turret, it serves as a pedestal for two octagonal towers that progressively narrow down to meet at a 24-meter spire, eclipsed by a 5-point star in a spiked frame.
  • The central section contains 15 rooms and one dining room on each floor. The elevator shaft runs up to the 20th floor. Beyond that, the octagonal tower encloses the elevator's machinery side by side with the cistern.
  • The hotel is currently undergoing renovation and is expected to reopen as a Hilton Hotel at the end of 2007.
  • The fins and the rosette between the spikes and the globe are covered in a thin layer of gold.
  • The embellished central entrance hall is decorated with the emblem of the city, Saint George the Victorious, a reproduction of the Kremlin's "golden gates", and chandeliers that resemble the local churches.
  • This Stalinist hotel is the most extreme example of the sacrifice of content to shape; only 19 percent of the interior space is actually put to use.
  • Unlike the essentially classical forms of the other six Vysotniye Zdaniya, this hotel was designed to blend harmoniously into the architectural ensemble of Komsomolskaya Square, reproducing 19th century Russian architectural elements.
