Gorky's House (Ryabushinsky Mansion) features a collection of the writer's personal items, as well as his rich library. The mansion is an exquisite example of early 20th-century Art Nouveau. Fyodor Shekhtel designed the house as a work of art for a rich industrialist, and Stalin later gave it to Gorky in 1931. Inside, admire the sculpted doorways, stained-glass windows, and ceiling murals. Notice the orchid frieze that runs all around the house. The carved stone staircase is a highlight, which features naturalist elements, such as flowers, snails, and jellyfish.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
