Triumph-Palace is the name of the tallest apartment building in Moscow and all Europe. It is sometimes called the Eighth Sister because it is similar in appearance to the Seven Sisters in Moscow, skyscrapers built in Moscow by Joseph Stalin through the 1950s. Construction for the Triumph-Palace began in 2001. The 57-storey building, containing about 1,000 luxury apartments, was topped out on 20 December 2003, making it Europe's tallest skyscraper at 264.1 metres until the inauguration in 2007 of Moscow's 268 metre Naberezhnaya Tower block C.
