Gorod Stoliz ( Russian Город Столиц , German ' City of Capitals ' , English Capital City / City of Capitals ) refers to two skyscrapers in the Russian capital Moscow . The two buildings are part of the new Moscow City business center .

Construction work began in 2005. The topping-out ceremony for the two towers was at the end of 2009, and the work was completed in summer 2010.


The two towers are called Moskva and Sankt-Peterburg . They have a height of 302 meters and 257 meters. The first tower is the fourth tallest building in Europe . Only the Lakhta Center in St. Petersburg at 462 meters, the Mercury City Tower in Moscow at 338 meters and The Shard in London at just under 310 meters are higher . The tower is also the first building on the continent to be taller than 300 meters. With a height of 257 meters, the second tower is still the sixth highest in the city. Luxury apartments are to be built on the 76 and 65 floors of the skyscraper. Their design, which looks as if the towers consist of several “building blocks” stacked on top of one another, should make them stand out in the city's skyline.
