Waterfront house

After a year after the October Revolution, the capital was moved from St. Petersburg to Moscow, there was a problem with the resettlement of a large number of civil servants. As a result, it was decided to build a separate house designed for representatives of the political elite. The construction of the building lasted more than three years, and as a result, a huge gloomy house was erected on the banks of the Moscow River. The history of the place where this building is located is also noteworthy. Initially, this area was completely swampy, then utility warehouses were built here, and later a place for executions. There is an opinion that at one time there was a house nearby in which Malyuta Skuratov lived.

Senior party officials, members of the government, scientists, writers and other high-ranking officials settled in the new house. At that time, the twelve-story building, which had twenty-four entrances and more than five hundred apartments, was one of the largest residential buildings in Europe. Stalin, Zhukov, Stakhanov, Khrushchev, Voroshilov and other prominent personalities lived in the House on the Embankment. The complex provided all the necessary services: a post office, a telegraph station, a gym, a savings bank, a polyclinic, shops and a canteen, where service was carried out only with coupons. When entering this house, you did not need to bring anything of your own: no furniture, no dishes, no furnishings — all this was handed over to the new residents along with the keys.

Notoriety began to spread about this place when Stalin's repressions began, and about a third of the residents of the House on the Embankment were repressed and shot. The walls of the house were impregnated with panic horror, which could not but affect the people living in it: some were unable to withstand the pressure of the psychological press and committed suicide. Family members of the party elite, wives and children under the age of majority, were often arrested. Since then, ghosts have often appeared in the House on the Embankment, residents were haunted by visions and obsessions, and some went crazy.

Today, the House on the Embankment is a historical monument and is one of the objects protected by the state. The veil of mysticism that enveloped him does not dissipate, and the house is still notorious to this day.
