This is one of 7 similar structures spread out across Moscow. I didn't get to see all of them as they're not that close to each other. This one, however, is easily combined with a visit to the Arbat district. Of course you can't go...More

Foreign Affairs Mininstry is a huge building classified as one of the seven sisters in Moscow. The building is near to Old Arbat Street and can easily be seen at a distance.

Amazingly huge and powerful building, one of the famous Seven sisters. Easy to find, since it's near to the Old Arbat street, and surely a site not to be missed.
