Forced to live in the attic while tumultuous events unfold outside, Rostov sets out on a path of unexpected emotional discovery.
The Metropol is an outstanding testament to Russian Art Nouveau, with all the original décor beautifully preserved.
Leading Russian artists such as Vrubel left behind a veritable treasury of antiques and works of art, mosaics, and reliefs. Also, it’s located in the very heart of the capital, only a three minute walk from Red Square, the Kremlin, and Bolshoy Theater.
It’s no wonder this was the meeting place of poets, musicians, and painters during the Silver Age.
