The book narrates a fantastic story of the most famous Moscow historical hotel. It didn’t become an opera theater as its creator Savva Mamontov were dreaming, but it turned into a true treasury, where the majolica of Mikhail Vrubel, bas-reliefs of Nikolay Andreev and the famous quote of Friedrich Nietzsche are exhibited like in a museum. Dramatic events (the hotel founder was arrested, almost completed building burnt down in 1901, and in 1917 artillery fire followed) didn’t prevent it from becoming the most prestigious hotel of the soviet Moscow. It became a city legend then and succeed to keep this status till nowadays.
The book is a beautiful and exciting narration combined with archive data that hadn’t been published before. The book will be an interesting reading for both: history connoisseurs and those who are just curious about the story of Metropol. The issue includes many historical photos from private collections that were printed in this book for the first time.
