The building is crowned with a weather vane – a treble clef.
In addition, along the route you can walk or get to the Bunker-42 Museum and Historical Complex on Taganka (5th Kotelnichesky Lane, 11).

Now it houses a museum dedicated to the history of the Cold War, and guided tours are held there.
Another point of the route, worth a visit, will be the F.I. Chaliapin (25 Novinsky Boulevard). The history of this mansion goes back three centuries; it is one of the Moscow buildings that survived the fire of 1812. Fyodor Chaliapin settled here in 1910. And in 1988, a museum named after him was opened in the house. Visitors can see Shalyapin’s personal belongings, his stage costumes, furniture and paintings.
During the walk, you can visit the center of contemporary art “Winzavod” (4th Syromyatnichesky lane, building 1/8, building 8). In the 19th century, there was a brewery here, and in Soviet times – a wine factory. After the closure of production, the building housed one of the largest art centers in Russia. It brings together galleries, studios and workshops representing different areas of contemporary art: painting, photography, design and many others. The center hosts exhibitions, lectures and performances.
