Pertsov House

This mansion was named after Pyotr Perstov, famous collector and sponsor. Located facing the Kremlin and near the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, the mansion benefits from its privileged location. Therefore Pyotr Perstov issued an invitation to tender so as to select the project that would be the most in line with the prestigious surrounding buildings. N. Zhukov’s project was settled on. Built in the years 1905-1907, the mansion, although modern for the time, bears all the elements of ancient Russian styles. The facades are covered with Maiolicas. Many wooden sculptures decorate the external as well as the interior of the house. It was nicknamed “fairy tale house”. The basement of the house hosted a cabaret called “The Bat” in 1908. After the 1917 Revolution, it is said that Leon Trotsky settled in that house. Nowadays Pertsov House is the home of the Russian Federation’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
