These are elite houses in Lenin Hills microdistrict of Moscow viewed from Victory Park.
Lenin Hills are part of Ramenki District in the south-west of Moscow. It hosts the main building of Moscow State University and some of its other buildings and territories including the Botany Garden.
The area used to be called Vorobyovy Gory (Sparrow Hills) but was renamed in 1924 after Lenins death. In 1959 they built a metro station over the Moskva-river (the only metro station on a bridge in the world so far) and it was named Lenin Hills station. In 1999 the station was renamed as Vorobyovy Gory after the old name of the microdistrict. However the microdistrict itself is still officially called Lenin Hills. E.g. Moscow State University main builiding official address is 119991, Moskva, Leninskiye Gory, MGU, dom 1 (i.e. Moscow, Lenin Hills, MSU, House 1).

Interesting perspective on these three buildings. They look like triplets, but each one a bit taller than the next. I like the graphic look of all of the lines and rows of windows. It is an attractive bit of modern architecture.

Beautiful capture of these skyscapers. Rather spreading these are going all the way up the sky. The composition is nice and i liked your POV. It is well taken giving the hints of its dimension. nice capture,

La tua nota mi consola ..palazzi vecchio regime e per nomenclatura .
Un colore che esce dal grigio dei palazzi del potere, e l'imponenza smorzata dai piani sfalsati .
Ottimo taglio con colore nel "basso" edificio ...che slancia le torri.

Графизм- супер! И цвета- жовто-блакитные, а еще цены мне нравятся на жилье в таком муравейнике ))) мне кажется, за 1 квартиру можно купить целую деревеньку. Классно. Да если учесть, что снято мыльницей-вообще супер.
