The key thing of the whole interior is a marble staircase. Check it out.

    Wow! The mansion obviously had a good luck of surviving the CCCP unscathed. Maybe it housed some foreign legation?

    • A says:

      Yeah, most of the interiors have survived because Gorkiy was living here in the 1930s and so it is the Gorkiy museum since his death.

      It was preserved in soviet time because there was house museum of writer Maxim Gorky.

    Absolutely breathtaking, extremely rare, intact Art Nouveau. It’s wonderful that the early Soviets preserved it, unlike much else. Fedor Shekhtel also did a still-preserved mansion in Moscow which is now the ambassador’s residence of the Australian Embassy. Its staircase and rooms are similarly original and magnificent. It would be great if a blog piece could also be done on it.
