Photographer's Note

As I told you before, Stalin created many skyscrapers around central Moscow to show as powerful was the Soviet nation. One of the smaller was Peking Hotel.
It was built between 1939 and 1958, the building structure became paralyzed during ten years because the II War and the ideas about as the building would be used were changed many times and at the end they decided transform it in a luxury hotel to celebrate the friendship between China and Soviet Union. But during inauguration this friendship almost was gone, anyway the place was used a lot by KGB members and had the only restaurant in the country where you could to taste exotic meals.
This is a view of the huge clock that worked for many decades, it was a giant pendulum clock and when it broke nobody got to restore it and became an electronic one, but the original machine is preserved behind.
The hotel is one of the most famous of the city and you can stay here. In this photo you can see they were restoring the fa蓷de, pay attention in the communist signs in the adornments.

Como disse antes, Stalin mandou erguer v嫫ios arranha-c徼s ao redor do centro de Moscou para mostrar o qu緌 grandiosa era a na誽o sovi彋ica. Um desses pr嶮ios menores era o Hotel Pequim, erguido entre 1939 e 1958. A estrutura ficou paralizada durante dez anos no per甐do da II Guerra, durante esse tempo mudaram a ideia de como o pr嶮io deveria ser usado e ao fim decidiram fazer dele um hotel de luxo para celebrar a amizade entre a Uni緌 Sovi彋ica e a China. Contudo, durante a inaugura誽o essa amizade esfriou. O local servia de parada para muitos membros da KGB e tinha um restaurante que era o nico local em toda a Rssia em que se podia comer comida ex鏒ica.
O pr嶮io ainda hoje um dos hot嶯s mais chiques da cidade. Temos aqui uma vista do rel鏬io do hotel, era um imenso rel鏬io de p瘽dulo que funcionou por d嶰adas, quando quebrou ningu幦 soube como consert-lo e ele foi substitu獮o por um maquin嫫io eletr獼ico, mas a maquinaria antiga continua l atr嫳. Reparem que estavam restaurando o pr嶮io e os adornos preservam v嫫ios s璥bolos comunistas.
