Moscow is a city that cannot be described with simple words - it requires epithets and proverbs. It has been called white-walled and gold-domed, ancient and youthful, hospitable and business-like, solemn and merry and bustling all at once. A sun, feeding life, which spins around it . In other words, a true capital.

Zhirkost Trust Cooperative House
The house was designed by architect P. Kuchnistov, and construction was completed in 1928. Today the building houses the Moscow City Duma (regional parliament), and back then it was owned by the Zhirkost Trust, which incorporated the famous cosmetic and perfumery factory Novaya Zarya. Between 1940 and 1972, it was home to the family of actors Maria Mironova and Alexander Menaker, and in 1992, a base relief in honour of their son, the Soviet movie and theatre star Andrei Mironov, was hung on the building's facade.
