MSU (MGU in Russian) was founded in 1755 by Mikhail Lomonosov. Since 1953, most of the university’s faculties have been situated on Sparrow Hills, in the southwest of Moscow. It also claims to have the tallest educational building in the world.

Highly polished eye watering artwork Irina :o) xx
Taken at 2.50am!Actually I used to live in this building for 3 years. The middle tower hosts some of the academic faculties, everything else is the student hostel. I know what Moscow looks like from the 33th floor! :)P.S. Colleen below wanted to pass you some tissues just in case :)
Beautiful work Irina – it glistens in the dark. Magical! (ps tell Robbie I’ll hand him up some tissues in a minute .. he tends to get a little emotional over artwork as good as this .. lol)Seriously though Irina this is a stunning capture and FAVED for sure.Love Colleen2012
