Gorky's House (Ryabushinsky Mansion), Moscow
(4.7/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.
