Gorky House Museum
Immerse yourself in this world of art and colour by visiting the writer's house.
An art noveau house.
Quite an ode to modernism, this is where the famous revolutionary writer Maksim Gorki lived for years. The art nouveau of its facade and balconies and its impressive interior staircase make it worthwhile going as far as Malaya Nikitskaya. Not only will you be able to admire the artistic shapes of its architecture, there is also the style of the furniture, as well as the peace and quiet you get from the exterior garden area. This house and museum leaves out straight lines in order to immerse itself in curves and abstract shapes to conjure up shapes of nature like trees in the windows, and flowers and snails. Inside the house, the lamp and the stained glass window attract attention and light up the whole house. The entrance is free and it's worth a visit, so come and immerse yourself in the purest modernist style!
