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.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
