Mansion of Arseni Morozov

Mansion of Arseni Morozov (November 2012)

Probably the prettiest building on Ulitsa Vozdvizhenka is the Mansion of Arseni Morozov which is better known as the House of Friendship or Europe House. After travelling around Portugal and Spain, Arseni Morozov decided to build himself an extravagant mansion in Moscow. The bizarre building was designed by Viktor Mazyrin and constructed between 1895 and 1899. According to legend, upon seeing the completed mansion, Morozov's mother said to him "Before only I knew that you are a fool, now all of Moscow will know!" In the Soviet times the mansion became known as the House of Friendship of Nations and was used to hold conferences and meetings.
