Seriously looks like a skybox in some first person game rather than something that's actually there, like if you turn on your cheats and fly over it's just a flat wall.

Looks unreal, as if something has landed just recently.

Russia, where tomorrow means today. They're in near-future dystopian cyberpunk stage right now.

Is this a forced perspective? Those buildings look MASSIVE

Reminds me of [La Défense](https://static.thousandwonders.net/La.D%C3%A9fense.original.7169.jpg) in Paris. But a more extreme version.

Impressive buildings. I take it that subtly blending in with the surroundings is not a big architectural concern in Moscow.

Honestly, I hate Moscow. Call me a fake Russian, but it's scary, people drive like they're clinically insane, and it's so congested. The best bit about it is the underground.

It's amazing how huge Moscow is. When arriving by plane, you can't pinpoint where these building are.

The Bourgeoisie has returned and build itself new palaces of steel and glass.

To be honest, this is not what I expected for Moscow :o TIL that Moscow has big ass skyscrapers!

I loved Moscow. It was so unique and beautiful to me. The roads were actually insane and it felt strange being a sardine in the metro at rush hour, since I'm from rural Scotland. But still, what a place. I remember looking up at those buildings at night and seeing them all lit up, with a little flurry of snow in the air. One of the coolest sights.

I like [this photo](http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/sokolov9686/24386461/881299/881299_original.jpg) where their tops are above clouds. From [this surrealistic set](http://sokolov9686.livejournal.com/2421882.html) taken from [the Ostankino tower](https://studfiles.net/html/2706/228/html_ME_IVLZZPs.6wCR/img-nHtdLL.png).

This reminds me of City 17

This is trippy - as an American, I've *never* seen a picture of Moscow's skyline. Literally every photo of Moscow I've ever seen has been of the Red Square, so for whatever reason in my head I figured there were no modern skyline buildings and the city was just basically that same type of architecture all over. Of course this didn't really make much sense, but I never took time to think about it.

looks like a mirage.

Looks like LA out of Bladerunner if it were sunny.

holy shit, was surprised to see this, but if you zoom all the way into the little field in the distance, towards the end of the road running through the picture, [you will see this jem.](http://cdn77.sadanduseless.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/sq9.jpg)

Why is there a number on the second-right building?

I've only see russia from inside dashcams. That is actually amazing.

looks like the future world... Nice, very inspiring...

Looks like City 17. EDIT: The skyscrapper on the far right definetly looks a bit like the Citadel.
