    I got to be bored last night and went to look up Russia (since I was curious about their political system, etc.) and I noticed they had a section on Architecture. So I clicked it and I have to say that all the buildings I've seen are not only unique and interesting, but beautiful. My favorite buildings come from the Middle Muscovite era (1530-1630 CE) and are often called Russian Gothic.

    So, I was curious what architecture do you guys like and where is it found?
