Everyday Soviet Architecture Through Instagram

Long after the collapse of the U.S.S.R., Soviet architecture has continued to intrigue and inspire with its often foreboding form. For locals and travelers alike, these buildings present the perfect subject for photography. 

We asked you to share your favorite buildings with us on Instagram and made a selection of the best submissions.

Want to participate? This week's theme is "Parks in Russia." Take your best photo and submit it on Instagram by tagging us @themoscowtimes or using the #themoscowtimes hashtag. 

Or join us on the Moscow Metro, which was last week's topic.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
