Faded Glamour

Russian Embassy in Havana,  Cuba,  November 2016

This Stalinist-style building, designed by Alexander G. Rochegov, opened in the mid-1980s when the relationship between Cuba and the Soviet Union was strong.

The resilient structure still stands out on the Havana skyline, posing with a hint of fading glamour and definitely looking older than its 30 years.
