Moscow State University is home to one of Moscow's "Seven Sisters", which are seven skyscrapers built in Stalinist style in the wake of World War II. The Moscow State University tower was completed in 1953, stands 787 feet tall, and is topped with the iconic red star of the era. Recently, a couple of guys found a way up (illegally) to the very top of the spire and have given us some astounding photographs of the view from there. These are three of a ton of photos over on their livejournal. Check them out!
