Hotel Ukraine-the Pearl among the seven sisters. So called "Stalin's vysotki, which were built in Moscow in the late 40 's-early 50 's.
The building was constructed in the year 57, and designed in 53. Initially, when designing it was called "hotel building in Dorogomilovo district. And only when the n. Khruschev hotel was called "Ukraine". In drafting the hotels competed more than a dozen engineers and architects. But there are several names that have played a decisive role in its appearance and structure:

- Engineer p. (A). Krasilnikov
- Architect. K. Oltarževskij
- Supervised the construction engineer V.a. Saprykin.

Photo hotels Ukraine are very effective and can be used to illustrate material on Moscow. From the perspective of the photographer is very good hotel. Moscow, kutuzovsky prospect, River Novoarbatskij bridge. The hotel can be photographed from any angle and in all the photos she will look spectacular, powerful. What is worth noting, and this is true for all of Stalin's skyscrapers-building doesn't look heavy, such as hotel Moscow. There is a sense of aspiration up and special energy. Here, probably plays a role not only design, but also the location of the hotel.
