Running route Stalin's High-Rises

Moscow's Seven Sisters

Diana Akhmadishina, captain of the Adidas Runners Moscow association, has shared a running route that showcases the monumental architecture of the 'first Soviet skyscrapers'. Stalin's high-rises were built in 1947–1957 and quickly became landmarks of the capital. Their construction utilised a number of technologies that were quite unique for the time. For example, the Krasnye Vorota Square high-rise was built using the technique of ground freezing, as the building was erected on unstable water-saturated drifting soils.
