5 Beautiful Moscow’s Symbols You Will Never See Again
Here is our list of Moscow’s landmarks dismantled in the past.
The Sukharevskaya Tower was one of the best known symbols of Moscow.
It was destructed by the Soviet authorities in 1934.
The majestic 16th-century cathedral – St Catherine Church of Ascension Convent – was dismantled (steps from Red Square) by the Soviets in 1929.
Red Gate ( Krasnye vorota) were triumphal arches built in the 18th century in Moscow and demolished in 1928.
This is a plan which was envisioned for the highest building in the world, and which was scheduled to be built under the command of Stalin in the 1930s. The project was cancelled when the war broke out, though the facade was almost complete by then. Today the Cathedral of Christ the Savior is located here.
