As you will make your way from one of the striking examples of architecture of Stalin era to the building, symbolizing modern-day interpretation of this style, you will hear a dramatic story of buildings demolished during that period. The surrounding area boasts of plenty of different restaurants where you can have your lunch – the choice is yours!
