  • S.m. Kirova apartment Museum-first Secretary of the Leningrad regional Committee and City Committee of the CPSU (b) located in a former elite boarding house, allows us to plunge into the era of the Soviet Leningrad. In the interiors of apartment No. 20, which had been held by a prominent statesman, preserved environment in which he lived and worked. There are many interesting things that belonged to the Kirov. A huge library of books, a large collection of personal belongings, ranging from eyeglasses to pipes. We will see here and study, and a bedroom, and dining room, and even kitchen big party worker. In addition to everyday life, here presents his political life: paintings, documents, and excerpts of his speeches on different platforms: from the party prior to the factory. It was very interesting because of the speech we saw how he was a charismatic personality who could "ignite" people. Overall, I was satisfied with the visit and tour. Would definitely recommend her to take, so you will learn a lot of interesting things.

  • If you at all know who Kirov was, this place is absolutely worth the visit, to see the many personal artifacts and get insight into the life of a Soviet leader of the 30s. His status as a hero means this place was frozen in time.
  • Highly recommend for anyone who wants to know about early Soviet history of our city.
  • Current Kirova apartment! Enter the usual entrance houses, climb on the 5 floor-and there is a museum. the apartment looked like one of the first persons of the States in 30 's years-very interesting. One of the first (General Electric) refrigerators, Office, library, bedroom.
