Community House of Culture

 The Community House of Culture is an iconic building and a central part of the historical urban ensemble. The impressive building is designed in neoclassical style with a majestic colonnade underlining the portico of the entrance. As all facades of the main buildings, it features the classic balustrade as a motif.

Elegant interiors

Its interiors are characterised by harmonious proportions and ample spaces. The foyer is particularly elegant, with Corinthian columns supporting a balcony. A monumental flight of stairs, once decorated with a large portrait of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, gives access to the upper floor. The grid ceiling of the foyer in Renaissance style is decorated with rosettes, flowery and ovoid motifs pertaining to the Classical style. A large entrance door once gave access to the cinema and entertaining hall.

Ideological and political education

The whole ensemble is proof of excellent knowledge of the classical style and proportions, put into practice by Moscow architects and craftsmen in the 1950s. The majesty and elegance of the building once served to celebrate the communist ideology, and thus were part of the ideological and political education of the masses.
