Why locals love it

MUST VISIT for Architecture lovers. Truly Masterpiece. The most reknown monument of Moscow Art Nouveau is built by famous architect Fedor Schechtel in 1902. Now here is a museum of famous soviet writer Maxim Gorkiy. Must see for the vibrant amazing interiors. Plus a unique opportunity to watch the building inside.

Why you should visit it

Shekhtel tried to create the illusion of an underwater world inside in interiors: a truly striking "melting" grand staircase - the perl of the whole building is made of white marble in the shape of a wave. Chandelier, suspended high above the grand staircase, reminiscent of a jellyfish.

Special tip

Entrance to the museum is free!
