The 'Seven Sisters' is the English name given to a group of Moscow skyscrapers designed in the Stalinist style. Muscovites call them Vysotki or Stalinskie Vysotki, '(Stalin's) tall buildings'. They were built during the dictator's last years, 1947 to 1953, in an elaborate combination of Russian Baroque and Gothic styles, and the technology used in building American skyscrapers. The seven are: Hotel Ukraina, Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Apartments, the Kudrinskaya Square Building, the Leningradskaya Hotel, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Moscow State University, and the Red Gates Administrative Building. Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Building was designed by Dmitry Chechulin (then Chief Architect of Moscow) and Andrei Rostkovsky.
