Gorky's House

Moscow, Russia


Lera Shvets

Ryabushinsky mansion was handed over to the Soviet writer Maxim Gorky when he returned to the USSR from Italy and in the 1930-s the place was turned into the writers’ club. The first reason to visit the mansion is to observe the landmark of Moscow Art Nouveau architecture — the style that swept over Moscow in the pre-Soviet period. Architecture and interior decoration of the house are very unusual as it is often the case with Art Nouveau. The underwater world is the main motive of the design solution and the famous "melting" marble staircase is made to resemble the shape of a wave. The house is absolutely magical and enchanting. Just come here without a tour and wander around, evolving your imagination by getting lost among the moldings, parquet floors, mosaics and chandeliers.
