A. P. Karamysheva City Manor

The building of the ancient Moscow manor that was built before the 1812 Fire of Moscow amazes passers-by to this day, even though it is believed that it was greatly damaged by the alterations of its later owners. But its claim to fame extends beyond the architectural merits: in 1933-43, poet Demyan Bedny lived here along with his magnificent library. Today both the poet's apartment, and his library are a part of the State Literary Museum located in the building.
