    Go, regardless of whether or not you architect. Sample of Russian Art Deco. Bitter especially nobody will bother you, though it is thanks to him, it was all saved up to 90 of the last century. Modern "bratki" managed to stick to that, even in a civil war preserved, but Mikhail now all return))) was there for a long time with a guided tour. Must be recorded in writing. Worth some small money.

    An extraordinary home designed by Fyodor Shekhtel. left by owners after the revolution was offered by Stalin to Gorky. Spectacular Interior ceilings with carved inlays, stunning stained glass Windows, door frames, a stone staircase exceptional. Insufficient indications, it's a little hard to find her; Unfortunately, the garden is not maintained very well, the glasses are dirty and-at first glance-the House-Museum seems closed. There is a very personal one that does not seem to charge to arrange for necessary maintenance. A bit of neglect apparent.
