The construction of the building was started in the beginning of the 20th century and finished in the 1930s. It is listed as a cultural heritage site. It was also Beria’s villa.

For reference:

Lavrentiy Beria belonged to Joseph Stalin’s inner circle. He was in charge of a few most important branches of the defense industry, including all nuclear weapons development projects and rocket engineering. He also supervised USSR’s nuclear program implementation.

Later on the building was occupied by a record company for some time. Now it belongs to somebody else I don’t even know and is under security, but if you manage to get inside you can enjoy the beautiful architecture, staircases, chimneys, wood engraving and more.

This is indeed a very nice building, but it is absolutely empty (what is more, it is deteriorating as time goes by, and its renovation keeps being delayed). On the whole, it was a walk among snow piles on a beautiful sunny day.
