Photographer's Note

Here I was in front Christ Savior Cathedral (whose images you saw some days ago). In the background you can see the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Building, it is 172 meters high and was concluded in 1953. Stalin modified the top of this building adding a metal spire on it.
When Stalin was the president of Soviet Union he decided Moscow should have skyscrapers like New York and decided to build seven ones, named "the seven sisters". I posted some of them before and I will post more in the next weeks.
What I guess interesting in this building it is like a large brown box with a narrow and higher one, in ivory, going up from its interior. Obviously the building as a different aspect from other angles.
In the far BG you can see some modern skyscrapers of financial centre of Moscow, something I will show some days ahead.

Aqui eu estava diante da Catedral do Cristo Salvador, cujas fotos vocs j viram h algum tempo. Ao fundo podem ver o prdio do Ministrio dos Assuntos Estrangeiros, com 172 metros de altura, concludo em 1953. Stalin modificou o topo do prdio ao ordenar que erguessem uma torre de metal no topo.
Quando Stalin era o presidente da Unio Sovitica ele decidiu que Moscou deveria ter arranha-cus to altos como os de Nova Iorque e mandou erguer sete deles, hoje em dia essas torres so chamadas de "as sete irms". H dias postei images de algumas dessas torres e vou mostrar outras mais adiante.
O que eu acho curioso nesse prdio que ele parece ser uma caixa marrom de dentro da qual sai uma caixa mais estreita e alta de cor marfim. Contudo, o prdio tem aspecto diferente visto de outro ngulo.
Ao fundo podem ver alguns edifcios modernos do centro financeiro de Moscou, algo que vou mostrar depois.
