You will know you've found it when you see Mayakovsky's face on the glass door and a large plaque in Russian about him; however, although everything I have read about this attraction says it's about to open, it has been closed these last few years....More

Nice to see a real communist exhibition, just a pity that there was no English translation, they didn't have a Spanish one either. One could observe the power behind the poster created by Mayakovsky and used by Stalin years later. It was also nice to...More

I recently visited this deeply odd museum. Whilst the displays are indeed wildly bizarre, you can't help feeling that they have been allowed to take over from some of the wonderful material on show. Original pieces of artwork and letters are often folded in half...More

We had read about Mayakovsky and had seen the wonderful metro station named in his honour, one of the most beautiful in the system. So we keenly anticipated visiting this museum. It was absolutely the most imaginatively creative house-museum we encountered. From our first views...More

The Mayakovsky museum is well worth the 100 rubles entrance fee! They also do not charge to take photos, though you are not supposed to use a flash or photograph the icons. It is very difficult to describe the museum, but probably its structure and...More

This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at

shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
