It's one of those buildings that will stand out in your eye line photos of Moscow. It was destroyed by the Soviets then completely restored. Incredible!

When I was in Moscow, this was one of the great attractions along with St Basal Cathedral; Red Square, the University on Lennon Heights and the Kremlin that has the largest bell in the world and the largest cannon in the world. What an experience

Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
