Very ornate and beautiful. Not at all what I think of as Stalinist 'architecture'! V

Super composition.

Fascinating architecture and not what I normally envision as being Soviet era architecture, ie, block house design. In a lot of ways, this building has some features that seem more reminisce of earlier Russia. With the spire atop and all the embellishments, it surely is a magnificent building.

It looks quite prickly with all those embellishments and the spikey spire. Also seems quite ornate for most Soviet era buildings. Excellent PoV and composition. V

A magnificent building, beautifully photographed. It's appearance suggests
a much earlier architectural style.
