In Moscow, there are many places with a grim history that сan’t be seen during a single tour. The Place of Execution on the Red Square, old areas with bad reputations, places of bloody terrorist attacks, famous prisons, and finally, objects from urban legends. We decided to tell you about the five places that have received the worst glory since Soviet times.

House on the Embankment

In Soviet times, members of the government and senior military officials lived there, but now these apartments are owned by rich people that want to have an almost-Kremlin address, and great view of the Christ the Savior Cathedral. But there are a lot of sinister tales and dark rumors hidden behind the facade.

Let’s start with the fact that the house actually stands on coffin plates: they were dug up at the nearby church graveyard (at the church of St. Nicholas on Bersenevka, which fortunately survived) and used in the foundation. In this photo of construction of a late 1920s Bersenevskaya church, you can see at the top left and at the top right corner, the edge of the temple of Christ the Savior not blown up.

By the way, Bersenevka and other local places in the old days were called Swamp – the low banks were constantly flooded, and until drainage channels appeared, people didn’t walk through this “godforsaken swamp.” But a lot of people gathered on the next Swamp – where they watched the public executions. Cossack rebels, Stepan Razin and Emelian Pugachev, where quartered and beheaded there.

    Hovrinskaya Hospital…built in the middle of a swamp. Its supposed to be demolished and the land set for auction to build a new medical facility. It was a huge project initially that went bad….very bad.
