Ukraine Hotel Turns 55
The Ukraine Hotel seen from the Moskva River

On May 25, 1957 the last among the famous Stalin-era monumental sky-scapers, the hotel Ukraine, opened its doors to visitors. Today, rebranded as Radisson Royal Ukraine, it celebrates the 55th anniversary.

      The building process had started in 1953, the year when Staling died. The hotel occupies a spot in Kutuzovsky Prospect near Taras Shevchenko Embankment and has for years served as a boarding point for the Moskva River boat excursions and cruises. It regularly hosts various events; most recently there was a master class by Francis Ford Coppola.

      Like all other "sisters", the building carries pseudo-Gothic influences in architecture and decor. Inside there remains a small-scale panorama of Moscow as it was 25 years ago, in 1977.
