Wooden Moscow

The Pogodin hut and three other must-sees


Moscow has famously preserved several hundred wooden buildings, many of those dating back to the pre-revolutionary era. In Soviet times, though, despite multiple renovations, wooden houses were still a thing in architecture. Most of these are small buildings where people live till these days.

This pseudo-Russian house in Khamovniki belonged to the historian Mikhail Pogodin. There, he kept there his vast collection of antiquities.

A unique example of a garden city, this quiet open-air wooden architecture museum is just a stone's throw from Leningradsky Avenue.

An old-fashioned settlement, where the Soviet intelligentsia lived and worked: Pasternak, Chukovsky, Vysotsky, Okudzhava.

A terem house with elegant stoves and paintings by the leading Russian folklore artist.
