Pinsteps. Mansion Arseny Morozov and Vozdvizhenka Street
Places to visit in Moscow. Languages: ru, he, en

This beautiful house can not be left without any interesting traveler, and even Tolstoy in the novel "Sunday" puts into the mouth of the driver the words "Look what dominoes have brought." It all began with a fire in the equestrian circus, which stood on this place until 1892. Varvara Morozova bought this site to build a house for her son Arseny for his 25th anniversary. Arseny is a famous Moscow rake and a scooper, unlike his older brother Ivan, he was not engaged in the business of the famous Morozov family, but he wanted at least to surpass his brother in something and he planned a grandiose construction. The house was built under the impression of the Portuguese Pena Palace in Sintra, which Arseny visited between 1892 and 1897. On this trip Arseny was accompanied by his friend Victor Mazirin, he developed the project of the house. The construction was completed in 1899, and 10 years later in 1909 Arseny Morozov died, meeting with himself in the wake of the argument that the power of the spirit is stronger than carnal pain. He bequeathed his fortune and mansion not to his wife, but to his mistress Konshina. After the revolution, an experimental theater worked in the house, then the residence of the Japanese ambassador, during the Second World War, the English newspaper publishing house, and after the war the Indian embassy. Today in the mansion are government receptions. Translated with Google Translate

List of routes including this place
Evgeny Praisman
Moscow City, Arbat, Alexander Garden and Red Square.

The route consists of three different districts of Moscow that are completely different from each other. City is modernity, offices, high-rise glass skyscrapers and the atmosphere of a business center in the super modern Western style. Arbat - old and new - is a window into the hysterical and Soviet past of the city. Alexander Garden and Red Square are the heart of Moscow. The route can be divided into three separate parts, and you can visit them a full day. Translated with Google Translate
