The Hilton Moscow Leningradskaya Hotel (Russian: Хилтон Москоу Ленинградская) is one of Moscow's Seven Sisters, skyscrapers built in the early 1950s in the Stalinist neoclassical style. Stalinist neoclassical architecture mixes the Russian neoclassical style with the style of American skyscrapers of the 1930s. A main element of Stalinist neoclassicism is its use of socialist realism art. The hotel, completed in 1954, was designed to be the finest luxury hotel in Moscow.
The staircase features one of the longest lighting fixtures in the world—it was once in the Guinness Book of World Records. The halls and corridors of the hotel's upper floors are panelled in dark cherry wood.
The tower of the Hilton Moscow Leningradskaya Hotel dominates Komsomolskaya Square, with its three ornate railway stations (the Leningradsky, Yaroslavsky and Kazansky) located nearby, along with a main ring road of downtown Moscow.
