For some people it is a 5-star hotel, for others a dwelling house. This building looks very impressive and beautiful at night. The building has 25 floors and its total height is 206m. “Ukraine” hotel is located at the bend of the Moscow River at the beginning of the Kutuzov Avenue.

The Cathedral of Christ the Savior.
It is an orthodox cathedral, a building that has a dramatic fate. The cathedral was built in honor of the soldiers who died during the war against the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte in 1812. When the communists came to power (the communist regime was an atheist one) they decided to blow up the cathedral as it was one of the main religious symbols of Moscow. There was an open-air swimming pool instead of the cathedral. And only in 1990 the decision to rebuild the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in its historical look was taken. The cathedral is beautiful when day and night time. His monumental look illuminated by many lights reflects in the water of the Moscow River.
