Them became to 25. January 1755 (12. January after Julian calendar) by decree by Elizabeth I. based on suggestion of the universal scholar and writer Mikhail Lomonossow by Iwan Iwanowitsch Schuwalow. Many Soviet/Russian sizes from politics, art and science are graduates of this university, among whom also Mikhail Sergejewitsch Gorbachev ranks. At present are approx. 30,000 students of all fields at the university written.
The modern building complex of the university was established in the stalinistischen sugar baker style (pictures) and be based on 240 m high tower-like main building. The university is on the Lenin hill something outside of the city centre in the midst of an enormous park plant and possesses a direct Metro - binding.
on the occasion of the 800-Jahr-Feier of Moscow 1947 the foundation-stones for the building of the Lomonossow university is put. The multistoried building is one of seven, which takes a symbolic position as an ensemble of the stalinstischen buildings of representations at that time. The complex established under the line of the architect Lew Rudnew is subject to a strict symmetry to the tower. The Turmspitze was demanded by Stalin themselves. The tower is garnished with neoklassizistischem decoration and a set of socialist hero sculptures. The enormous extents of this building of universities go the far beyond actual requirements. The architectural criticism speaks here of a monumental building with decoratively überladenem Neoklassizismus, which celebrated in the era Stalin the exaggerated pathos.
