Writer Maxim Gorky's residence from 1931 to 1936, this remarkable home is a stunning example of art nouveau architecture, highlighted by a twisting marble staircase, stained glass roof and flowery mosaic and stucco decorations.

Truth be told, as a museum this doesn't have much going for it; however, as an example of Art Nouveau, Russian style, it shouldn't be missed. The staircase is exceptional. The rooms are of interest albeit not terribly well cared for. The hidden chapel in...More

The Gorky house (or Ryubashinsky mansion) is worth a visit even for those who are not admirers of Gorky's writing. It is a fine example of an art nouveau house, beautifully preserved, which feels as if one is moving underwater, with curving, flowing carving and...More

It's interesting, I wouldn't mind guessing that the majority a foreigners who visit here come for the architecture rather than any great interest in the writer. The thing is though that clearly the authority's view is that this is a museum about Gorky first and...More

Go downstairs first ,to check your coat, then upstairs to pay and put on overshoes supplied. Most rooms have information sheets in plastic sleeves in a few languages including English. Last room up a narrow staircase would be tough for some, worth a visit to...More

This house has been frozen in time and was quite hard to find. Although it is interesting to visit I would say it is really only for those who have a love of Gorky. It is free to enter but they charge you to take...More

It was such an unexpected delight to enter Gorky's house and find his previous home frozen in time. The magnificent staircase is an architectural gem and appears to be flowing like waves. The original Art Nouveau windows are outstanding and frame the rooms beautifully. Various...More

Interesting art-nouevau house. Not many houses were built in this style in Moscow. Famous writer Maxim Gorky lived in this house.

There are no English translations or English audio guide. Museum is small and out of the way. Probably should visit other places first unless you love Art Nouveau or interior design. House is full of historic furniture pieces.

Patriarch Ponds
When you need to hide from the city’s noise and
traffic but don’t want to stroll too far, Patriarch
Ponds is the place to be. Calm water, friendly swans
and ducks with beautiful early 20th century
architecture in the background make this neighborhood
a place you’ll never want to leave. Besides stylish
bars and restaurants scattered in the streets around
the pond, you’ll be able to enjoy museum life from
