Hotel Ukraina Building
Everyone in Moscow is familiar with Ukraina Hotel
, which is located on Kutuzovsky Prospekt, near by Kievskaya metro station
. Hotel Ukraina was built in the years of 1953-1954 by the chief architect of the project A. Mordvinov with colleagues V. Oltarzhevsky, V. Kalish, and engineer P. Krasilnikov.
This 29-floor building is 200 meters height, has great location and amazing views over the Moskva River. The Moskva River encircles the building like a loop.
The central part of the building is given over to the hotel. It has 1000 rooms. The two side buildings are all apartments - each is designed for 500 apartments.
The walls of the hotel are decorated by obelisks, parapets, vases in the form of a sheaf of wheat and the stars. The spire completes Hotel Ukraina Building
. The spire was often criticized for its “inharmonious” addition into the architecture of the building.
From 29th floor you could see the incredible panorama of Moscow, the White House City Hall and the Expocentre.
