  • The Lubyanka building is an emblematic building that was headquarters of the Soviet security services of the State, as the Cheka, OGPU, NKVD and KGB, and there were personalities such as Félix Dzerzhinski, Vyacheslav Menzhinsky, Guénrij Yagoda, Lavrenti Beria and Yuri Andropov, among others. In 1897, it was originally the headquarters of the Russian insurance company, but it was confiscated in 1918 during the revolution. It was amended during its history, including a prison. For a long time it came to the hybrid main facade, half older in neo-Baroque style and the other more modern half of the constructivist style of Stalin, until the same unified recently in 1983, in colours terracotta with a slate plinth. An old joke of bygone eras said that: the Lubianka was the tallest in Moscow, because from their basements, you couldn't get to see Siberia. Recommended, turn the Apple to appreciate the personality of the building, which stands next to the history that accompany it and discover that their facades are still different symbols and coats of arms of the Soviet era.
