A little bit about gigantic Stonehenge: Moscow City

Moscow itself is a colossal city not only in width but also in height. And it's hard to imagine that over the Stalinist skyscrapers something even more enormous can be built . But people did it and now every time entering the city it’s hard to take the eyes from the glass giants scraping the sky and stretching higher and higher like stalagmites.

Giant turquoise columns are visible from almost anywhere in the city hovering above the roofs of buildings as the mysterious crystal palace. Approaching the gleaming skyscrapers brain is trying to understand the surreal image of this enormous Stonehenge which was built by the modern world in favor of the same ancient gods.

Mirrored sides of giants shine with all shades of cold and only soaked in sun's rays can soften them a bit.

At the foot of the steel titans reigns fresh gloom replaced by blinding rays of the sun when you find yourself on the upper floors of a transparent body. Moscow that was pressing you  to the ground by its concrete boxes  a few hours ago suddenly turns into a maze of small low houses and only Stalin towers stand out among the plains of tiny structures.

Have a good day, MarrySav!)
