  • History of Moscow of Soviet times, especially 30-50-IES of XX century, without this building provide impossible. The story of the huge building is very attractive, such is too complex and all you can find on the Internet. Read necessarily. It was a municipality in the State party and for the cream of society, i.e. exemplary Socialist commune. Here there is a small museum which is well worth a visit. A lot of interesting things in it. From red square is very close-just go to the Moscow river. Spend an hour or two. Go around the building, visit the Museum.

  • The House stands next to the Kremlin, the Temple of Christ the Savior, a marsh area, stone bridge and the Moskva River. Another probably could not be, because here lived elite Soviet times!

  • Quite an interesting little Museum. Presents the history of the House itself and Stalin's time as a whole: the events of that time could not affect the tenants of the House. The Museum will be interesting for people interested in this era and fans remember Soviet times. Before visiting must see exactly where there is an entrance because walking around the House can be quite long. The Museum was visited by within the Olympiad "Museums. Parks. The farmstead ".
