‘Seven skyscrapers built in Moscow during Stalin’s times are the iconic part of the city’s skyline. Moscow historians believe that there was a reason why they were built. The project designers led by Stalin had intentions to demonstrate the entire world how strong and powerful the Soviet state was. They also say that Stalin was interested in astrology and decided to build the skyscrapers in accordance with astrological rules.
Rumor has it that Stalin planned to re-build Moscow to make it look like a Zodiac table. The metro loop line with 12 stations and nine skyscrapers representing planets were designed for these purposes. The Exhibition of Economic Achievements and the Ostankino TV Tower were to represent an asteroid belt. The metro loop line and the skyscrapers were built concurrently.’
