Soviet Union


The old building of the V. I. Lenin State Library (former P. Pashkov's house) Architect V. Bazhenov

The building is now part of the Russian State Library (after the national library went through de-Leninization after the fall of communism.)  The building was previously the Rumyantsev Museum, the first public museum in Russia, but was closed down by the Soviets in the 1920s.
