We went to the indoor pool at The President Hotel in Moscow. Nice, but small.

I'm not much of a pool guy myself. Once you have kids you get to splash around in chlorinated urine more than you want.
Just here for the beer.

Ha ha cool pictures.
But its a good thing it wasn't built. The one in Romania is a blight on the landscape and replaced quite a nice city i hear.

The giant pool was built on the foundation that the palace of soviets was to stand on.

If not Lenin at the top how about Karl Marx or the Soviet flag?

What do you think would have happened to the statue of Lenin on the top after the fall of the Soviet Union?

Nothing. The Palace of Soviets was meant to be the center of a Pan-European Soviet Union. History would have to have taken a different turn of events in 1937 for it to have even been built.

Hey Kirov!

Any chance you could repost those Pictures?
