Gorky House Museum, Moscow

Ulitsa Malaya Nikitskaya Dom 6/2
Russia 121069
Tel: 7 495 290 0535's insider take:

Maksim Gorky's plays, novels, and short stories did much to glorify the proletariat before the Russian Revolution, but after a falling out with Lenin, he moved to Italy for most of the 1920s. He returned to the Soviet Union in 1928, where he became one of the founders of Soviet socialist realist literature. Upon his return, he was given this pink-trimmed Art Nouveau mansion, built by renowned architect Fyodor Shekhtel before the revolution, which wouldn't have looked out of place in the South of France. It is a bit grimmer these days (time has taken its toll) but still stunning inside, with wood paneling, an incredible carved balustrade on the grand staircase, and huge rooms displaying Gorky's effects, such as his library and fascinating photos.

Open Wednesdays through Sundays 11 am to 6 pm, except for the last Thursday of every month. Last entry at 5:30 pm; free admission.
