The Sovietsky Historical Hotel
For those who wish to immerse themselves in the Russia of the Soviet era, The Sovietsky Historical Hotel is the place to stay. The hotel originates from 1952, when Stalin himself ordered a hotel to be added to the already existing restaurant ‘Yar’. At this time, the early 20th century facade was reconstructed in Soviet style. The restaurant was then renamed after the Hotel Sovietsky and served as an important meeting point for governmental and diplomatic circles. A 1998 renovation of the structure leaves behind an eerie mixture of Soviet era propaganda and pre-revolutionary grandeur.
