Hotel Ukraina aka Radisson Royal
Hotel Ukraina (Ukraine) is one the famous seven buildings in Moscow that are known as “Stalinist skyscrapers” or “Seven Sisters” that were laid in 1947 to mark the 800th anniversary of Moscow. Their special, highly distinguished style characterizes to a large degree the appearance of downtown Moscow serving as a striking architectural landmark of Russia’s capital.
The Ukraine Hotel lies on the picturesque Western bank of the Moscow River inside one of Stalin's famous gothic skyscrapers, built in the 1950s to demonstrate the prowess and glory of the Soviet state. Standing in front of the Russian Government's White House and not far from bustling Novy Arbat Street, the Ukraine sits in the administrative and business heart of Moscow. For many years it was dubbed as “Moscow home” for guests from all around the globe. After half a century in service, the hotel required a thorough overhaul and complete modernization. The work continued for three years, and then, on April 28, 2010 a new, modern hotel was opened in the legendary building: Radisson Royal, Moscow.
Radisson Royal hotel has it own flotilla of the luxury river boats. Equipped with ice-breaking technology, these huge fancy yachts are the only river cruisers running all year around.
