Another magnificent nouveau piece. Yet this one is too famous to tell anything. On the gmaps here, aand lay out. It’s truly enchanting in the courtyard at night *-*
Tolstoy house was built in 1910—1912s for count Tolstoy (not Leo but his…er…fourth cousin? I’m not sure how to say this in english, even my brain can’t understand this.) by one of my most favourite architects: Fyodor Lidval.
Lenfilm Sherlock Holmes’s The Tiger Hunt was filmed here.
There’s a rumor that the “bad flat” from The Master and Margarita was inspired by the flat №660 which is on the 6th floor of the 6-floor house. (residents of this flat disappeared, got shot or mad through all it’s history) (there’re all sorts of rumors around this house actually)
And Trololo guy lives in this house too.
