«Yellow Boat "Apelsin" on Moscow-River»
Nice cityscape from Bolshoi Moskvoretsky bridge with a cute yellow river boat named “Apelsin” (Eng: Orange) sailing on Moskva-Reka (Moscow-River) and with background of one of the famous Seven Skyscrapers built in 1950s by Stalin order. This is an apartment building in Kotelniki district (Kotelnicheskaya embankment, 1 / 15, metro station Taganskaya). Appeared in the 50s years of the 20th century, the Skyscrapers symbolized the power of the Russian people in a variety of industries. Thus, the building of Moscow National University symbolized the power of the Soviet and Russian science, the building of the Foreign Ministry - the international authority of Russia, a skyscraper on Kotelnicheskaya embankmet symbolized greatness of the Russian theater and cinema and so on. It is considered prestigious to have an apartment in a high-rise building in Moscow.
