I thought this was interesting to see if you're nearby in Freedom Square. But I wouldn't make a special trip just for this. It's just a building.

Unless you are nearby don't make a special trip to see this. Yes it's huge but there is not a lot else to recommend it.

A must for arkitecture lovers! Built in the beginning of 20th century in constructivistic style. Unusual and located just in the very heart of the city! Need renovation though!

Beautiful buildings in Center of town. Only disappointment was that there is no history written about the buildings. I heard that they were built in the 1930's and the Nazi's tried to blow them up during WW2 without success! Apparently very strong buildings!
