Stalin skyscrapers in Moscow: Photos of stars of the Seven Sisters

Stalin skyscrapers in Moscow: Photos of stars of the Seven Sisters

Daniil Ananyev and Sergey Shumilov from the Birdseyeview team made 7 great photos of stars of the Stalin Skyscrapers (also known as Seven Sisters) built in the USSR. The history of the buildings begins in 1947; there were supposed to be 8 skyscrapers but the last one  was not built. Also, not all of them have stars but only six ones. A spire of the MFA building was not strong enough so the star was not installed.

The pictures were taken from the sky via a drone DJI Spreading Wings S1000.
